Poems in English

I like a look of Agony

I like a look of Agony

I like a look of Agony,
Because I know it’s true
Men do not sham Convulsion,
Nor simulate, a Throe

The Eyes glaze once and that is Death
Impossible to feign
The Beads upon the Forehead
By homely Anguish strung.



Poem I like a look of Agony - Emily Dickinson
