Emily Dickinson Pain has an element of Blank

In her book, The Pain Chronicles, author Melanie Thernstrom says that Miss
Dickinson meant that pain is unlike anything; it is almost impossible to
describe metaphorically. One cannot say Pain is like a this or a that
because it is unlike any other thing experienced.

This poem means that in the moment of pain, everything else in your mind
goes away. You are completely in the moment, focusing on the pain. You know
nothing but pain in that agonizing moment; not when it began, not if it
will continue, nothing. The pains you have felt in the past tell you what
is painful in the future, so you can avoid it. I'm surprised that no one
who posted got what "Element of Blank" meant, because it popped out at me
the first time I read it...

i think this poem means everything she felt was pain... but the element of
blank could mean anything. but personally i think it means that as everyone
said she can't remember happiness only pain.

It has so much mystery in it. ( Element of Blank ) If only we knew what was
goin through her mind the moment she wrote this. I read this poem is
English class and I absolutely fell in love with it. You can only see how
lonely Emily was. I love the way she said It has no Future--but itself--.
She totally speaks the truth in her own way. I write poetry my self and I
have to say Emily Dickinson is my role modle!
