Perhaps it is a metaphor for her relationship with her poetry.

well , first of all to make an analysis of a poem you need to base the
style of Emily's poems. As you read several other poems you would realize
that all of her poems talk about one subject : death. she explains in this
poem that she had made a contract with death that it would take her and she
would be accpeting that offer, but getting nothing in return..only himself

This poem talks about marriage when we give ourselves and take our spouses
for pay. And this must happen in a happely conscious way. No gain, no pain,

i think that she is referring to her love and that she gave her whole self
to him and he barely gave her anything.
but i could be wrong so please correct me :)
