In his writings, why did he lose all of his women to death if they were "perfect?"

Perhaps these divinities were a gift too great to be bestowed upon a mortal. I cannot say precisely who "all" of these women were that reveared perfection, but in the case of his wife, Virginia, these succeding line from "Annabel Lee" may best lend an answer:

"The angels, not half so happy in Heaven went envying her and me

Yes! that was the reason (as all men know in this kingdom by the sea)

That a wind came out of a cloud by night, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee"

Those are to the best of my recollection, but the focus remains unchanged. A love so great simply cannot exist among mortals, yet even after death it continues:

"And neither the angels in Heaven above, nor the demons down under the sea

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul of the beautiful Annabell Lee"

All Respects and Regards,

See by perfect he meant that they were virgins, and he never had the s3x with them. Only with prostitutes and rosy red palm and her five sisters.
