Of the beautiful Annabel Lee, by MasochisticHeartache Of the beautiful Annabel Lee, by MasochisticHeartache
Annabel Lee; Edgar Allan Poe

entered into a contest, #EliteDarkManips based on Annabel Lee.

featured: [link]

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.


another piece inspired by the amazing Edgar Allan Poe, his works continue to inspire me. :heart: this poem is one of my favorites, after 'The Raven', i've been wanting to do a photo-manipulation like this for such a long time.

thank you to the fantastic stock bringers, dA really does have some truly great stock and deviants.

thank you! :heart: i wanted the sky to look as if it was collapsing in, i've had a few questions about that! i tried to get the whole fantasy type look, but i think i failed! haha!

i think it helps the scene, it lends a very dreamy, etheral imagery too it that resonates througout the poem itself. it is a poem that experiments (be it intentionally or unintentionally) with the effects of time on memory and the whole poem is slightly faded at the edges. i though the sort of off looking sky was done on purpose to work to that effect.
