I never lost as much but twice

This poem is about death and begging to God for mercy. Dickinson has lost
so many people in her life, 2 friends at around the time she wrote this
poem. She is simply calling out to God..."Burglar!Banker-Father!"...saying
that 'God, you put out a loan for loved ones for me, but you take them away
much too soon." So while she believes in God's great divinity she is "poor
once more" because she is alone, without her freinds, again.

Emily Dickinson

In Dickinson's poem, "I never lost as Much but Twice", she reveals that she
has had two false conversions; meaning she felt that she had experienced
salvation twice. She reveals this by using the title, and the line, "Twice
I have stood a beggar at the door of God." Rather then finding any blame
in herself for not being saved, she threw the blame on God. God sent down
angels to tease her; giving her hope and taking it away again. "Angels
twice descending-reimbursed my store" It is because of this experience
that she questions God's morality and refers to him as a burglar. He gave
her hope, and took it away. Twice. She is also contradicting herself
because in a sense, if she had two false conversions, God cannot be real...
yet at the same time, she believes that the angels are teasing her and she
shows resentment about it... so then God must be real.
