LA DOULEUR EXQUISE
[noun]
French: literally “exquisite pain”; the heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can never have.
[Christian Birmingham]

WOW
"fernweh [feyrn-vey]"  - (noun) This wonderful, untranslatable German word describes the feeling of homesickness for a far away land, a place you have never visited. Do not confuse this with the english word, wanderlust; Fernweh is much more profound, it is the feeling of an unsatisfied urge to escape and discover new places, almost a sort of sadness. You miss a place you have never experienced, as opposed to lusting over it or desiring it like wanderlust. You are seeking freedom and self-discovery, but not a particular home.   (via mirroir)
