If this be paradise, give me hell

"I've got one for you."
"What could be worse than a hell where you're constantly reminded of everything you've done wrong?"
"If I created a hell, it would be simpler, I'd take all the happiest moments of your life and have you relive them perpetually until every joy you ever had, every freedom you ever experienced, tastes like ashes and feels like torture."
"Buddy, you're one sick f**ker."
"Yeah, let's grab lunch."

I completely agree with you.... sad and scary….

I could only add one description - one more possibility how hell could look like - you "live" a normal life but every wish and desire cannot be fulfilled and you are aware of it.

Thank you for your comments! I must say I don’t know what’s worse. Frustrated desire or desires satisfied ad nauseam until further desire and satisfaction is not possible anymore. I’m still leaning towards the latter because as long as desire is frustrated there exists the hope that it may yet be satisfied. But in the latter case, you look around and what options remain? I leave it up to you.
