Definition: Magoa (pronounced: MAH-goh’ah); Portuguese; noun
1. A heartbreaking feeling that leaves long lasting traces, visible in gestures and facial expressions.
Why I love this word:
I don't think I love this word. Not at all. Because I know the feelings of heartbreak and I know that it never truly leaves you. These traces are marks and scars left in your heart. After these experiences, everything in your life changes. The way you see the world, the way you speak to people. I know that right after experiencing this feeling for the first time I drove my friends mad. I didn't want to talk to anyone, I didn't want to do anything. You lose hope after a heartbreak. You lose hope until someone comes into your life to reassure you of your love once more.
