You Left Me

You Left Me

by Emily Dickinson

You left me, sweet, two legacies, –
A legacy of love
A Heavenly Father would content,
Had He the offer of;

You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.

    I thought it had real meaning, it didn\’t have to be long to do that.
    It was painful and upsetting to read.

    I thought that is was good. She lost the man of her dreams, which she must have loved dearly. She didn\’t even get to show him to her father to approve, but she thought that he would approve. But when he left her (died) he left her all this pain as deep as the sea. Even though he left her the two legacies.

    you guys need to calm down, the question of her sexuality still remains a question, and scholars debate the topic still, so no one really knows, and seeing as you can\\\’t ask her yourself, how about you calm down on the insults to other people? you could use some tact.

    Emily Dickinson is bisexual… I\’m an art student, we studied her. She had many lovers, young and old, man and female. She has a poem for every one of them.

    If you guys are interested in knowing Emily better, read her letters along with her poetry. Personally, I don’t think this is a romantic love poem. I think it’s about the loss of someone dear to her, perhaps her nephew Gib. Not sure the date this poem was written, but I will look.

    The question of her sexuality will always be in question, but it’s those that act ridiculous that are hiding something in their own lives…or just acting like that to somehow fit in. That in mind, read more–it might open your mind.

    My opinion of her sexuality? At this point in my study of Emily, I believe she fell in love in her early 20’s with Susan Gilbert (Dickinson) and loved her until the day she died.
