A Doubt If It Be Us - Poem by Emily Dickinson

859

A doubt if it be Us
Assists the staggering Mind
In an extremer Anguish
Until it footing find.

An Unreality is lent,
A merciful Mirage
That makes the living possible
While it suspends the lives.

    A Doubt If It Be Us
    A doubt is still a doubt even if an unreal merciful mirage can make the living possible
    as it is only a mirage and that is understood well by them to stay apart...very nice work- 10
