The Heart asks Pleasure -- first --
And then -- Excuse from Pain --
And then -- those little Anodynes
That deaden suffering --

And then -- to go to sleep --
And then -- if it should be
The will of its Inquisitor
The privilege to die --

- Emily Dickinson

Your Say

E.D., if what you write is true for thee, 'tis a pity. For others the Heart first seeks kindness, love, worthwhileness, gratitude.
