Life to be bearable must be lived intensely.

Through it a continuous steam of emotion passes.

Though that emotion is ever changing as flowing water changes,

it at least bears us along on a current that gives the illusion 

of continuity and permanence.

But analyze life,

tear it's trappings off,

lay it bare with thought,

with logic,

with philosophy,

and it's emptiness is is revealed as a bottomless pit; 

its nothingness frankly confesses to nothingness, 

and Despair comes to perch in the soul.
