Despair يأس

"You’ll be free from the trap of your being,
when, through spiritual need,
You’re trodden underfoot, like a mat,
in the mosque and the wine house."
~ Sanâ'i

Ya’s يأس is despair, the color of which is commonly perceived as black (“in black despair”); the little brightness there may be, deep in the center, seems hopelessly blocked.

A penny for your thoughts...
