My Life had stood – a Loaded Gun –

by Emily Dickinson

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

You’d be hard pressed to find much sexiness in this poem. There is a reference to sharing a pillow in stanza four, but you’d have to have one vivid imagination to take it much further than that.
