Emily Dickinson - I went to Heaven

I went to Heaven --
'Twas a small Town --
Lit -- with a Ruby --
Lathed -- with Down --

Stiller -- than the fields
At the full Dew --
Beautiful -- as Pictures --
No Man drew.
People -- like the Moth --
Of Mechlin -- frames --
Duties -- of Gossamer --
And Eider -- names --
Almost -- contented --
I -- could be --
'Mong such unique
Society --

I saw Heaven--a beautiful, soft, serene place. I almost want to go there, but I do not know if I would fit in.

HORSE SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This poem and emily dickinson are so fucked up, this women needed professional help. I am shocked that she had never committed suicide or went on a killing rampage during her life.
