Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity

A little early, but because blogging at work is verboten (at least for the moment), happy 200th birthday Edgar Allen Poe (January 19, 1809)

I own his complete works in one giant book. In junior high I did "The Telltale Heart" at speech contests. Never won anything, but I loved doing it.

I read a lot of his stuff when I was younger, it's still affecting me.

It was a good day all around, Camille, with all the different celebrations. I hope you had a good one as well.
