Sadness

She likes melancholy. She likes sadness in romantic songs. For there are so many ways to describe sadness and yet so few to capture happiness with originality. Songs of joy are rarely new and rarely capture the moment. For happiness is best when it is one's own to feel personally.

She likes sadness in romantic songs. Of those loved and lost. Of those that drifted away. Of those who are lost forever to what is called Death.

She likes sadness in songs when it isn't personal. When certain lines capture you. When the song is yours in parts but never in whole, for it isn't your story that is being sung.

She likes sadness in songs that speak of that which she can't relate to in entirety.
Because there is a certain comfort in liking the sadness which isn't yours.

i agree, and think i can relate. like i can listen to sad songs and be melancholy, even when i dont have stuff to be sad about...sometimes sadness is comforting...its a 'known' feeling. because i think theres jut diff depths of sadness..not 'kinds' of sadness. and theres many 'types/kinds' of happiness, as well as many layers of depth, making it a much more complicataed emotion to capture.

HB: I like the description of sadness as "many kinds" and "many depths" as you put it.

Mirchii: Thank you!

Raja: :P She doesn't take any delight in the sadness of people but extends sympathy/empathy and a listening ear :) Glad you're back on my blog and back to blogging!

Is this Taylor some blog-stalker of yours???

1. I visit ur blog regularly, but don't comment since it'd seem repetitive (I'll always write 'excellent' :-) )
2. I don't know who s/he is
