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,
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.
