n. [Brit. wallesia] a condition characterized by scanning faces in a crowd looking for a specific person who would have no reason to be there, which is your brain’s way of checking to see whether they’re still in your life, subconsciously patting its emotional pockets before it leaves for the day.
Something created by our own imagination?
Are we all in fact unloving and unloved?
Then one is alone, and if one is alone
Then lover and beloved are equally unloved
And the dreamer is no more real than his dreams” —T.S. Eliot (via musingsinfemininity)
