epitome of incomprehensibility How can you trust a word with a history like this? First it means kidnap, then expands to be a euphemism for rape, and then sometime in the 20th century with the rise of bad romance novels it turns into a fancy term for passionate, adjective-enhanced sex. If this word were a cab driver, I wouldn't get into his/her car; such jarring turns make me queasy.

On the other hand, can you trust any word?

e_o_i (Trust is not necessarily necessary for attachment. I don't trust my alter ego either. She gave up reading Ovid's Metamorphosis when she decided its main lesson was "Eating babies is hilarious." I mean, do you need to go to ancient Rome to confirm that?) 130612

Doar O.E.I.

to me it`s meaning has transformed from a history, a malignant history..
into a...a word that wasn`t travelled here in blue...a word that to me means passion and more passion...i didn`t mean to put this word to bring up past blights...

it was meant as passion only.

god you make me feel repentant...

e_o_i I'm sorry! I meant to turn up my roundish and increasingly undeserving nose at the word itself, not not not not... not! at your poetry.

The river never strikes the same place twice; lightning flows into different channels.

To illustrate:

E.O.I.
O.E.I.
O.E.D. (Oxford English Dictionary)
Q.E.D. (quod erat demonstrandum)

Romance and etymology are two sides of the same dodecahedron.
