Me from Myself -- to banish



Me from Myself -- to banish --
Had I Art --
Impregnable my Fortress
Unto All Heart --


But since Myself -- assault Me --
How have I peace
Except by subjugating
Consciousness?


And since We're mutual Monarch
How this be
Except by Abdication --
Me -- of Me?


~ Emily Dickinson (1862)
