Clearly, the poet is expressing but deep affection for her sister-in-law
who is her immediate neighbor. It was the custom of 19th centuary writers
to often use romantic and passionate words with an innocent meaning. If
there had been any other meaning I hardly think it would have been written
as a poem which could have been published and was allowed to remain by
herself and family after her death. Biographers' interpretations want
primarily to appeal to their own age. In fact, it is one of her easiest
poems to understand if you take proper notice of her favored dashes! They
are breaks not slight pauses as a comma.

The book's called "Open Me Carefully," and it's now widely believed that
Emily Dickinson shared a... somewhat sapphic relationship? with Sue
Dickinson. While intimate female friendships were often common in the time
period in which both women lived, the soaring and often amorous language
"Sue - Forevermore!" suggests a relationship closer to lover than to
'friend' or 'sister'.
