An image of a recluse. Emily Dickinson was known as somewhat of an eccentric by her local community. She was however a shy girl, rarely greeting guests that would visit her family home, and later on in life, would never leave her room. But oh the writings ♥️ Her way with words often made melancholy, despair, and death sound pleasing. Immortality was a frequent theme in her poems, and because I spend every day trying to gain such power, her poetry always appealed to me.
Today she is remembered as one of America’s greatest writers, and my entire heart. There is only one confirmed photograph of Emily, and all that’s left of her is etched into my flesh, until I too must home to shades of underground. Perhaps then, I will no longer require that photograph to remember her face. Emily Dickinson, the original sad girl. (I’ll tag the artist after he gets his picture of her. She’s not fully healed yet and still peeling a little bit on the bottom.) #tattoo #tattoos #ink #inkd #inked #emilydickinson #emilydickinsonpoetry #literature #poems #poetry #portrait #art
