A definition of hell

Hell is all that infinite despair
that never can be properly expressed,
the sorrow that can never fully be cried out,
the eternal suffering that knows no limits,
the unreleased and unknown love
that never gets communicated or fulfilled,
the unrelenting ceaselessness of cruel oppression,
all that pain that is too strong
to even be expressed by any screams,
the anguish that can not be even remedied by death,
the evil that can not be isolated or defined
and never ceases to torment us
by completely meaningless catastrophes and sabotage,
the losses that can never be restored or compensated,
mostly suffered by the passing of relationships;
in brief, hell is all that which most of all needs treatment
but which never can be treated.

i completely agree! though, i believe it is escapable: only by our choices. we all must "pay the piper" for the choices we make in our lives. wonderfully expressed, really enjoyed it. *applause*
