This is one of my favorite poems, but of its metaphysical undertones.
Typical of the genius that was Poe, he used is emotions about the person he
was addressing to convery a deeper and more penetrating question.....that
is, our lives are really just dreams and we exist in a universe that at
times does not seem real. Many people experience this feeling where they
cannot tell their waking life from that of their sleeping or dream life.
Its quite a profound and powerful poem and touches me very deeply and every
human spirit in that moment in time when we realize we are both mortal, and
our time in this world is so short and that sense of haunting timeless that
drives our lives is a very real and universla feeling we all experience
between the joyous distractions that fill the days of our live. Thats what
this poem means to me
