    Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's the Raven and missing a girl called Paloma, who I'm worried about never seeing again.
    Tormented with depression from this and she's in a dark place too and it's all dark and I read The Raven tonight (paloma is Spanish for dove too) and it spoke to me, so this is my own The Raven.


    Senseless sorrow to contour fore this morrow I explore sore weak and hollow
    Haste traced in regret to keep my wallow fore your light I did follow before
    Darkness consumed what was once bright now swallowed; Will I see her again? I dove strike:
    Playing games of chance; Awarding chance to she; I repeat: Will I see her again?
    I pray for a break in an escape I can borrow or take for free;
    As I pull hairs that make me sneeze;
    Watching TV looking for content that I like
    and if it airs it'll be and if not -- It wasn't meant to be (just wasn't meant for me)
    Faith can communicate in many ways; Filled with hope I cope grown radiant over this maiden laden with joy fore delusions do toy and illusions deployed prove to destroy the weak and annoy; Why?!
    Why hath I put my faith into such garbage? Why can't love be planted?
    Why must I be left alone upset and on my own I ask it,
    God, is this thy plan thou has in mind? Do you remind me of blessings took for granted now departed to memory? Am I to thank thee for a future of misery? Do I explore what the heart can endure? Or accept thy plan for me oh Lord!​
    Tossed forever and forever restored will restore me; Nevermore​

    Well written, it also reminds me of Lovecraft
