Karl Brulloff. Nun's Dream.

Nun's Dream
Karl Brulloff
A nun dreams about falling in love, at the door  the mother superior checks in on her.  We can have inspirations that can not be expressed because the world around us does not allow it. You can have feelings come up but you suppress them.. It could be for your own good, but then you are not following your inspiration.
