Madness, hysteria, passion, intelligence, genius,love
The residue of what could have been
The remainder of what could not be
Reminder of love as its rarest self;
so furiously pure that he could not
but let her ravage his mind
and he could not
but allow it to succumb to fragments.
The name that permitted reincarnation; allowed only by her leaving.

He begged her to stay
He begged her for life
For his mind

Sabina is every woman who has loved another man
For when a woman loves
She loves with every pore in her body
As if it were her last

[Carl Gustav Jung had a prolonged nervous breakdown after Sabina. It was after recovering that he rose to become the renowned psychologist he is now known as.]
‘My love for you was the most important thing in my life. For better or worse it made me understand who I am…sometimes you have to do something unforgivable in order to go on living,’ Jung writes in A Dangerous Method.
