A Word for Times Like These

A Word for Times Like These

what do you call it when
your body tingles with the desire to do, to create, to be… but you cannot.
your heart feels like it will burst to express, correct, fix… but you cannot.
when the present doesn’t seem to be enough and the future is so far away.
at times like these, i fall into myself.

i don’t know what to call it, but it’s exactly what i’ve been feeling lately!
i woke up at 3am the other night, ideas flowing about what to write, and once i went to type…nothing. repeat ad nauseam.
thanks for putting this into words.

from karl lagerfeld, who i’m convinced is secretly a genius: “I’m never content with what I do. I live in a sort of permanent dissatisfaction. I think that’s the secret to doing things well.”
