“The second form occurs through the body of a small child experiencing true thirst. Eyes wide, she reaches out her slender, naked arm for a drink of water. But in the moment she begins to grasp it, it is snatched away from her, so that her fingers close on air. It is not the experience of the child, but of the witness, that matters here. That experience is heartbreak…which is the second form of love.
Its inverse is jealousy, and contempt.”
