Though I have my periods of melancholy, I am in constant flux, changing and evolving...

Dream Within A Dream
by Edgar Allan Poe.

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep - while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

I currently love k-pop/k-hiphop. BIGBANG is my new obsession.

Love them all: Daesung, G-Dragon, Senguri, Taeyang, and T.O.P

But especially love this one: the rapper T.O.P

oh and as a side note, the collaborative side project of BIGBANG leader G-Dragon and T.O.P is brilliant. <3 GD&TOP
