REMORSE
a poem by Emily Dickinson
 
Remorse is memory awake,
Her companies astir,--
A presence of departed acts
At window and at door.
 
Its past set down before the soul,
And lighted with a match,
Perusal to facilitate
Of its condensed dispatch.
 
Remorse is cureless,--the disease
Not even God can heal;
For 'tis His institution,--
The complement of hell.
