Melancholy: A state of being


/ˈmɛlənˌkɒli/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [mel-uhn-kol-ee] Show IPA noun, plural -chol⋅ies, adjective
1. a gloomy state of mind, esp. when habitual or prolonged; depression.
2. sober thoughtfulness; pensiveness.
3. Archaic.
a. the condition of having too much black bile, considered in ancient and medieval medicine to cause gloominess and depression.
b. black bile.
4. affected with, characterized by, or showing melancholy; mournful; depressed: a melancholy mood.

Yes… those are perfect definitions, even the archaic ones, to describe my current state of mind. Not depressed, merely melancholic. The things one wants are rarely the things one gets; this being the ultimate truth in life and utterly undeniable too.

Nevertheless, the truth shall prevail, and the worthy shall recieve their dues. There is always a silver cloud lining in the dark skies of doom, all I have to do is continue persevering  to the very end.
