capacious as the sea

You left me, two legacies, –
A legacy of love
You left me boundaries of pain
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.

“there is a physical or emotional separation between two people.

Chronologically, the poem was probably written in 1862, during the period of Dickinson’s most intense writing.
