Obviously depression has once again consumed him, thus having the poem explore the once aspect of the dark side of human nature; what Poe himself called "that species of dispair which delights in self- torture". Accumulating all of the other trageties in his life, The Raven expresses the eternal darkness that plagues his whole heart. As Poe has written it, the Raven will never "take thy form from off my door!" and shall never "Take thy beak from out of my heart". In other words, he says that depression and dispair will never leave him.
