to miss. Dickinson

Confined your body, a
                   window seat in glass.
passion with folded hands allowed the world a glimpse

demanding obediance formed  in
flows into molds inescapable,
but in words.

parlors of conventional reason.
a slow ticking clock and porcelan cup.
passions restrained crawling;
the watchful eye - your heart.

a kiss to see your eyes flash:
a tea cup falling;
the freedom of a possibility......
we escape

This poem is a draft yet to be completed. It needs a deeper study

    This is a beautiful tribute to a poetess both misjudged and misunderstood. I feel some sort of kinship here with her....and felt you describe her personality and melacholy of the conventional society that held her and how she felt like she was an outsider, looking inward. Even her fear of the romantic love is in here. Wow.:) Best wishes, Sara

    Great poet was she captivating an audience but would have been unheard of had it not been for one family member finding her work. Sara
