Quoth the Raven Nevermore – Goth Symbolism

I totally covet this hair accessory. A hair band with a silver Raven n Raven feathers. Gawd I must have it. Ravens are very goth.

Goth Raven Hair Band

So are crows. They steal our souls if we have them. Crows are also the symbol of death. Some gothics will keep a dead crow in a box in their apartment or bedroom so the smell of death is there. Death is all around us anyway. I wouldn’t go that far. I like my place clean but my mind dirty n dark.

I read n re-read the poem The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe that poet was goth. All the stuff he wrote he was definitely goth before goth was goth. Was he the first to make the Raven a dark symbol a symbol of madness? I think after reading the poem so many times it’s become like a mantra to me. The man in the poem had lost his true love and was dark depressed n crazed over it. Who doesn’t feel that way after losing their love? I lost my true love cos he moved n won’t even talk to me n now I have this lame whatever emo boy in my life who worships me but I hate how he’s so into me. I know if I tell him I want this hair band he’ll buy it. Maybe he’s really my emo slave. }Scarlet Angel{
