Eros (A Short Entry!)

I do love philosophy. Eros, as defined by Marina in an episode of The L Word.

The Greek word, eros, denotes want, lack. The desire for that which is missing. The lover wants what it does not have. It is by definition impossible for him to have what he wants. If… as soon as it is had… it is no longer wanted.

You KNOW something is philosophical once you start using phrases like “by definition”… lmao. I feel so giddy and happy inside at this precise moment. It is 2:01am and I’m only cold, but not sleepy.

Anyway, I say the fun is in the chase. Why want anything at all if it is so easy to get?

Let me not get started. Rambling (philosophically) at 2 in the morning is not the best thing to do… I shall just continue to enjoy this episode.
