The day my father died this poem came to my mind. Sure it can be about many
kinds of "pain". However, the death of a beloved calls stronger for it.

While I agree this poem is indeed about death, I don't believe that it is
from the standpoint of those who have lost a loved one, but rather of the
apparent pronouns Emily creates out of words that are regularly nouns-
"Heart", "Nerves", "Air" etcetera. If you read it like these objects and
feelings are beings themselves, your outlook on the poem shifts.

by limiting this poem to just "death", we are eliminating all the other
possible reasons for the "pain".
