Words of the unseen


There are moments when we feel an unexplainable way, when there are no words that come to our mind to identify what we feel. It could be a good feeling, a bad feeling or just a moment of you realizing your existence in this big rock floating through time and space, but you won’t know the right words that’ll share your experiences with the world. We rarely come across words as such and consider this as one of those times. Here is a list of words you will probably use very few times in your life, with fewer people just because not everyone feels the need to find these words. If even one of these words speaks to you, then we’re already kindred.
