Sorrow حزن

"Inspired by love’s sorrow, the minstrel sang out
Such an ode that the eyelashes of the world’s
Philosophers streamed tears of blood."
— Hâfiz

Huzn حزن refers to sorrow or deep sadness, a state I couldn’t visualize any other way than desaturated and faint as it empties you of everything.
