In the Archive XV – What I am you cannot see V
Pain has an element of blank;
It cannot recollect
When it began, or if there were
A day when it was not.
It has no future but itself,
Its infinite realms contain
Its past, enlightened to perceive
New periods of pain.
(Emily Dickinson, The Collected Poems)
