The unspoken feelings. To write the silences of love. The author goes through the feelings of love in the light of the experience of silence that lovers share or repel. In the secret, passing, mercenary and passionate meetings and in those that bind or separate the lovers in everyday life. Silence is considered as much the ally of love as his arch enemy: too much silence can distance lovers to the point of overseeing rituals of farewell. The article also pauses on the philosophical problematic of silence as feeling and not only as a manifestation of feeling. It follows that we can know more of the love if we wonder on the place (and the contradictory ways) that we reserve to it and not only on the erotic and emotional plane. In fact it is impossible to be silent on the spiritual, mystical and religious love that traditionally appeals to the silence to catch the deep connection with the divine. Finally the writing, an act inspired by the need for silence, is suggested as an opportunity not to forget love, whatever its manifestations, or to live it with more poetic intensity: both in his happy fulfilled and in his silent rituals of farewell.
Keywords: Silence, feeling, writing, silent transformations, perturbing emotions, deep feeling, elusiveness, care of love, complicity, novel of training, interpretive key, happiness.
