since i saw this poem...i was too ecstatic reading this...but then i can't
get the true meaning until we tackle this poem to my english class... in
peers...by then i truely get the meaning which is.."the heart will let go
first before the mind"....which sometimes we don't agree..coz what they
said...the brain is higher than our heart therefore the brain must control
our feeling..we all have difference perspective of life...therefore we all
have different belief in life....i love the all the poems of EMILY

this also reflects on emily's love life...try to search her background and
you will understand her poems in life.....

this poem is so touching...we can't forget someone who really marked on our

I think almost everyone can identify with this poem. And when you read it,
you picture the person. Emily Dickinson was trying to forget the pain, but
in the poem, she reminds us of our pain too. I love this poem!

I love this poem! I had to analyze it for my English class. I didn't really
care for it that much at first, but now that I really understand it I like
it much more.

wooow . It is sooo touching. While reading it, I could not stop my tears.
This poem remindes me of some of my past relations which I struggle to
forget but always miss>

What an amazing poem! It really touches my deep heart, but i still wonder
how we could forget those who once gave us warmth and love, those impressed
us so deeply. We can try to forget but at some unexpected moment we will
still miss them from the bottom of heart. That feeling is so strong that
you feel like your heart bleeding. Yes we are keeping bleeding as in the
song sung by Leona Lewis. This is called Bleeding Love.

we looooooooove this poem soooo much! first we hated poetry, but now we're
addicted to this poem. it helps us in bad times! often we read it for each
other in times of trouble. and it makes us feel better, because it's
soooooooooo deep !
sometimes we don't go to school, and we stay home, so we can read this poem
all day long! its just the best poem of the world!
oh my god its so amazing, how someone can write something this beautifull.

I think Dickinson is one of the best American poet. In this poem, she has
conflict between her heart and her mind to choose her love, so his mind
spoke to her heart trying to persuade the heart to give up this love which
is impossible.
