Edgar Allan Poe


Edgar Allan Poe

I occasionally turn to my favorite authors for inspiration.

The many works of Poe were some of my first experiences with horror. The Raven, The Black Cat, & Berenice have a special place in my own dark heart.

“You can’t, if …


“You can’t, if you can’t feel it, if it never
Rises from the soul, and sways
The heart of every single hearer,
With deepest power, in simple ways.
You’ll sit forever, gluing things together,
Cooking up a stew from other’s scraps,
Blowing on a miserable fire,
Made from your heap of dying ash.
Let apes and children praise your art,
If their admiration’s to your taste,
But you’ll never speak from heart to heart,
Unless it rises up from your heart’s space.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust
