A Nearness To Tremendousness


A nearness to Tremendousness—
An Agony procures—
Affliction ranges Boundlessness—
Vicinity to Laws

Contentment's quiet Suburb—
Affliction cannot stay
In Acres—Its Location
Is Illocality—

by Emily Dickinson

surprised to see your poem on same topic. the language of yearning is universal, it seems! liked it.
Very very beautiful, although it is sad! A 10 from me, I think this was hard to write...or maybe it was a katharsis! ~~Elya Thorn~~
