& the pleasure of pain

& the hurt of apologies

& the regret of unfinished business

& the ghostliness of loneliness

& the isolation of feeling lost

& the confusion of being captured

& the unrequited love of people

& the humanity of humility

& the pride of doing it right

& the congratulations of feeling content

& the peace of love

& the adoration of the little things

& the detail of dreams

& the surreality of creation

& the birth of nature

& the untainted growth of the world

& the cosmos of writing

& the literature of languages

& the poetry of life

& the existence of faith

& the belief of trust

& the honesty of sadness

& the tears of joy

& the ecstasy of night

& the darkness of the heart

& the centre of the universe
