How many times the word ********* is used in the book The Prince and the Pauper??? Of course they are using it as meaning to spit out, or put forth. The language is old English and I'm having to read it with my daughter. Wth?? LOL it's exhausting. But I do crack up when I read...
and I am always trying to improve by reading what native speakers write. While words come naturally to some, I find myself deliberating a lot before putting them down, thinking if it is the right word to express how I feel.
I am amazed that in certain languages there are words...
or use too many words. That's because I'm a word girl. I LOVE WORDS! I think only people who love words can understand this concept. To limit my words is to limit who I am. So many words in my head dying to get out. It's time to start my novel today!!!
Now it has become like an agenda. The chitter chatter inside my mind fuels my imaginations. After a hard day this is my relaxation. You might think how crazy it is.
Yes right its damn crazy when I meet myself in my room alone and all sorts of questions come in rapid succession...
Words are funny things.
They can hurt like the dickens.
They can heal... be a balm after a brouhaha.
They can paint pictures in your mind of pirates with their trusty blunderbuss...or that Friday night hootenanny...or that time you escaped the cops and hoosegow.
Dissonance is word of the day. I've had to read and write it a lot today and every time I do, I enjoy the way it sounds, which is ironic considering it's meaning.
But when you add the word 'cognitive' in front of it, well that's just like a party for my tongue!
I have noticed how lazy my vocabulary has become. It is evident in my answers to questions, personal messages, etc. I would grimace to know how many times I have used the word " nice!" Its odd....because I LOVE words. Many years ago, at least ten, in noticing my lackluster vocab...
Don't want to be a friend with benefits.
Don't want a father for my child.
Don't need a man to provide.
Don't need you to be my life.
Not too concerned about being your wife.
Now a partner, that, I can entertain.
I want depth, I want devotion.
I want passion, up against the wall...

barstool, she took off her ring...
I thought I'd get closer
so I walked on over.
I sat down and asked her name...
When the drinks finally hit her she said:
"I'm no quitter, but I finally quit living on dreams...
I'm hungry for laughter, and here ever after,
I'm after whatever...
Your words blanket me and draw me into your world of fantasy. The mist descends and everything around us disappears... I watch your mouth move with sensual syllables, and your eyes alight with passionate fire.
My soul submerges deeply into you as you weave a story of passionate...
..I use to write a lot, words were the life that I can't live without and the friend that I can't stay away from.
I use to wait for the moment that I will have my diary on my hand, to tell anything and everything in my heart.
Time passed....and I lost it by comparing my words...
May I challenge you with my words?
May I motivate you in kind?
Do I help you to deftly cope?
Move you beyond the daily grind?
May I offer you a new perspective?
Gift you some magic oh so rare?
May I offer you some love of mine?
Show you how much I truly care?
May I dance with...
Words! I am hungry for them, I am in love with them, I cherish them, I use them, I need them, I want them, I dream of them, really I do! Words run through my blood!
Without them~ I am lost, I cannot sing or write, I cannot speak of love or magic or tell you who I am or what I...
The largest number of stories I've posted on EP deal with the individual words I love and with quotes I carry in my mind and heart. I began collecting quotes at about age 30, and I have several hundred that I've committed to memory. Most are attributed; some are contested or...
it's been living and spreading since the beginning of time... but there is so many different ways to love that sometimes, the way it is expressed is being misinterpreted and can be confusing.
There is the unconditional love you feel for your kids, no matter what they do or how...
Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is...
By uttering them, we give them life. We give them power to hurt, to ridicule, to discriminate, to degrade, and to kill.
But I still love them.
Because words comfort, heal, encourage, and make you believe that maybe, everything is possible.
I love the feelings that words...
“A man with a scant vocabulary will almost certainly be a weak thinker. The richer and more copious one's vocabulary and the greater one's awareness of fine distinctions and subtle nuances of meaning, the more fertile and precise is likely to be one's thinking. Knowledge of...

Let my words stroke your hair
let my poetry kiss your lips bare
Let my words enter your mind bearing torches
Let them rekindle again your forbidden desires
Allow them willingly into your being
let them caress you gently within

Dude, I cannot believe you were able to talk to Public Safety last night, as drunk as you were!
What can I say man? I'm just a trellient person.
Yeah, but you know who wasn't...
They take forms and materialized
That we can’t managed anymore
They collapse as torrents
In people’s life
They can be obstacles
Like walls from armed cement
Not easy to get through
Accommodated between the marsches
The more it moved,
I could just as easily have posted this in the "I Like Learning New Words" group. Given its meaning, however, I thought this to be the more appropriate location.It is from the Greek "epos" (word) and "-latry (worship). As can be seen from the etymology, the definition is "the...
but yet so complicated. Love can be written with them, as well as history. Amorous feeling expressed, amazing acquaintances and relationship can be brought up around them, people around the world dance to their music and lyrics. Sometimes words can be so beautifully said and...
