Emily Dickinson (1830–86).  Complete Poems.  1924.

Part One: Life

CVI


I FELT a cleavage in my mind
  As if my brain had split;
I tried to match it, seam by seam,
  But could not make them fit.
  
The thought behind I strove to join        5
  Unto the thought before,
But sequence ravelled out of reach
  Like balls upon a floor.
