Perhaps you would like to rephrase this question, preferably in decent English. What in the world is "etarnal drakness"?

Eternal drekness? Seriously, I think you might find the poem "Dreamland", available at many Poe sites, to be the one.

It is not so much eternal darkness as an otherworld afterlife dimly seen, darkly envisioned by the poet who is not permitted to open his eyes during the dream visit. Like St. Paul's quote "now we see as in a glass darkly" which is interesting since Poe uses the "now" "then" parallel construct himself.
