Edger Allen Poe published the poem, raven in 1845. A man so distraught by a loss of his beloved. Trying to keep his mind busy in a book. The raven shows us grief, negativity and depression. You can not run from the thoughts but face them.
We are hopelessly depraved and unable to free ourselves from our own bondage of our thoughts. The inability to escape from self-destruction of our own minds.
“Take thy beak from out my heart”
