Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Emancipation

No rack can torture me,
My soul's at liberty
Behind this mortal bone
There knits a bolder one

You cannot prick with saw,
Nor rend with scymitar.
Two bodies therefore be;
Bind one, and one will flee.

[Hata Bildir]
