  • I was writing a poem observing the lack of any good words for the nostalgia, or desire, one has for someone, with whom one was involved in a mutually destructive and abusive relationship. The Russian word razbliuto comes close, but it doesn't have the whole mutually poisonous aspect to it. I found the word I was looking for on your list, veneficial. You're a shining star!

  • Thanks ruzuzu, I found bez via bey. I was initially reading about oil painting materials and the origin of the term varnish. I don't know how I got to bez or bey.
