It is the most beautiful emotion I’ve ever experienced. It’s not the one I enjoy the most, but it’s certainly the prettiest. I don’t think many people actually feel melancholy, seeing as it’s so widely misinterpreted. Melancholy is NOT sadness.(Sames as depression is not sadness, it’s a long period of emotions related to sadness) Melancholy is related to sadness, but it shares equal similarities with emotions like peacefulness. And there’s something indescribable about melancholy. If an artist can convey melancholy effectively in their work I gain tremendous respect for that artist. Things dirty windows and cobwebs all seem connected to melancholy and I have no idea why. Melancholy is an echo.
