Sadness brings the strongest hope to hold on to. True love brings the strongest pain with it. An aching heart is one that feels very strongly. That heart beats lividly, more alive than the one which is dulled and feels no pain. Tears may drip to despair if hope is lost, so have hope, hide it somewhere, keep it dear, and at the bottom there will be great light.

Thank you for that! Seems to be exactly what I needed to hear right now.

We could all use some hope from time to time. Especially when its so dark below and we need that light to guide us.

This is one of my favorite songs of theirs'.

"And the darkness can descend, we can relish all the pain; but I know that's what you love, cause you know I love the same."

Ah, the delicious melancholy of youth!

Don't worry, adolescence is curable — unless, of course, you're over 30.

By the way, 'livid' means 'the colour of lead', so I'm not sure quite what you mean by 'the heart beats lividly'.

Livid can also mean angry. Great vibes, clinging to hope and all.

Furiously angry, in fact. So, the OP gets furiously angry in love?

It doesn't really have to do with being in love, it's about the great sadness of being human.

You said it, I didn't.

Sadness is felt but not wanted so the hope is to not have sadness - hope wants it to go and hope wants happiness.
But if there is sadness why not let there be sadness - that feeling is life itself - but no - hope wants other.
See if life can be felt as it is. Is that possible? To let life be experienced as it is instead of the mind jumping up and hoping for not this but something else. Where is the something else when there is sadness?
Sadness will not stay - but the fear is that it will never go when it is present.

It's a strange sensation when you draw comfort from sadness. Most people try to avoid sadness and despair, but there are times when their presence can be rewarding. For example, when listening to sad music, you can become overcome with emotions ranging from grief to elation - which can be beneficial for balancing and developing your mood.

Hope blinds you to what is.

I wouldn't say despair is good. Despair comes when there is the illusion of there being no hope, making it one of the worst of feelings.
