Which Is It?

"And sigh for lack of heaven..."

"I never spoke with God, Nor visited in heaven; Yet certain am I of the spot As if the chart were give."


I think it is interesting how Dickinson first talks about the lack of heaven in her one poem and then talks about how she never saw God or visited heaven but is certain of the spot.  It makes me wonder what her beliefs were and if she ever wrote about them truthfully.  Was she unsure about her beliefs that she wrote about both?  Did religion have any significance in her life.  This just stood out to me.
