it was that feeling
an emotion with so many ways to describe it that left it still so unexplainable
that feeling that leaves a beating in your heart that physically aches
an feeling that overflows the emotional heart to a point that it burdens your physical heart
that feeling of wanting to run and fly and do everything beautiful in the world
but at the same time leaves you wanting to just be still and soak it in
that emotion that surges through your chest at the sight of one
the notes of a song
the words on a page
not what they say 
or look like
or sound like
but what they feel like
like water rushing
hungry but never filled
a feeling so absolutely beautiful that it hurts
one that you don't even notice that you feel until you step back
and instantly crave it like air itself
then everything floods in a surge of longing
a feeling that makes you close your eyes
to avoid distraction of what cannot be absolutely
wonderfully felt
something that can be lost
never stolen
it is always the choice of the one
something that sends tingles through your body
something every author
silent soul
has tried to describe
a feeling such that a combination of all the songs
thoughts combined cannot fathom
never neat
every color
and sound 
thrown together in one big mess
emotion that makes your heart race
and your mind unable to decide whether to keep up with it
or silently let it run it's course
something that cannot be recreated or imagined
something that changes us 
and can either change with us
or abandon us
something that makes you lose your head
and sense
and makes you think that you would do anything and everything
to make the moment last yet another moment more
it makes our eyes brim with tears
both happy and sad
angry and forgiving
all rolled into one roaring flame
it is a emotion that must break something inside of us
to make room for itself
but even if it leaves 
that piece broken never comes back
the scar it leaves never fades
the scariest thing about it is that it doesn't have to happen
and it can leave a feeling of dread that someday 
it might be there no more
a scared kind of fright that makes you want to try all the more to make it last
despite the consequences
despite the fear
despite everything thing else in the world
only to have that feeling
so you try anyway
no matter what
you try anyway
oh darling
you just have to keep trying
