Bittersweet. The juxtaposition of two opposites. An oxymoron, some might say, but I think I know what whoever coined that word was talking about.
It's intense longing with extreme pleasure.
It's doing something great but having to stop right before you get there.
It's being able to see something but not have it.
It's having an emotional connection but being barred from having anything more.
It's sitting right next to someone but not being able to hold their hand.
It's enjoying the moment, knowing that it'll be over far too soon.
It's fighting off tears of joy and sadness at the same time.
It's not knowing if you'd do it all over again if you had the choice.
