You might look up Helen Adam's "He Tells His Dream." A match for anything in Poe.

I rarely get affected or inspired by English language poem ...
but Robert Frost's stanzas affected me to poet today ...(word poet used as a verb} Thanks for Levene who forwarded...

"NO ONE SHOULD SCARE ME !"

No one should scare me
I have my mind
No one should scare me
I have my right

No one should
Put me down
I have my face
‘Thee’ can see the sky
Can see the sea
With its insane waves...

No one should judge me
I can judge my self
I have many astrocytes to do that
I have no fear of anyone ...
I have my faith ...
Created from my cardiocytes ... dendrites...

No one should call me Atheist
This is unjust...
My faith in me created
Before my birth... from my genes...
Of my ethic parts ...

I am who I am
No one can change me
Change my DNA
Change my name

I will stay till I sigh
My poems are my law books
I carved them by my hands
To remain statues on cards

I wish someone could read them
And send comments
From their honest minded-hearts...

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom

in the dark
