anguish (noun) severe pain, physical or mental; unhappiness.

Anguish is acute suffering caused either by physical pain or unhappiness. Injuries cause anguish to those who are injured, and their anguish causes anguish to those who are close to the injured. That is, injured people suffer because of the injuries, and those close to them also are pained at seeing them suffer. Anguish fills us with tears when we see the anguish of physically challenged little children.

  • The anguish of the victims of the disastrous fire in the department stores brought tears of anguish to every one who saw them.
  • The victims of the explosion and their relatives waited in anguish for the rescue team to arrive and provide some relief.
