Its the feeling of being completely, hopelessly, desperately in love with someone, all the while knowing that your feelings will never reach them.

Its contradictory in that you feel incredible because you love someone so much, but also at the same time you feel almost overwhelming despair because you will never know what it is like to hold them in your arms, or touch their face, or kiss their lips. You will never know what it is like to wake-up next to them in bed in the morning, bodies entwined.

It can be masochistic in nature- it causes such heartache, but you enjoy loving the person so much, you willingly let your heart go through the agony, so you can hold onto something- I don't know, maybe hope?

In any case, unrequited love is a very sad thing.
"Unrequited Love"-
Its like drowning but you just won't fucking die.

Representative of lesbians everywhere. The despair of trying again and again to be successful with the girl you fall in love with, and the constant rebuke of failure because in the odds are always against you- they are straight almost always. You keep *losing* (in attempts at love {saving Madoka, who represents hope for love}) and you keep picking yourself up from the wreckage of heartache and hopelessness for the attempt to try again. There is the whispered potential- "you may still win". But for nothing. There is the maddening sense that nothing is right and that you are not right and there is no salvation from this endless cycle of misery.

Akemi Homura: Everything's messed up. The more I redo this time the further apart we get. My feelings words nothing gets through to you. I'm out of options. I don't know what to do anymore.
