'The greek word 'eros' denotes want, like, 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, it is no longer wanted.'


Can someone explain what the above means its for a academic book I am reading (Eros The Bittersweet). I understand most of it its just the bold that confuses me?
