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.

This is a moment in time.
Where everything is confused. You can feel the anger, the sadness, the disullionment with a GOD who hasn't done what seems fair. This is the moment in time that you can feel like a sharp sword in the raw and cold and brutal silence of the car.
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...
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?

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...
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 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...
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!
discourse is rare so to say nowadays. I find myself plunged into boredom or annoyed very easily by people's lack of intelligence or serpentine and highly disgraceful sentiments that elute the filth stored in their little mundane minds. There's nothing wrong in being amorous for...
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...
Whenever I read a book, I use a blank paper as a bookmark and write down not just words I don't know but words I know but love or would like to use more often...I filled my paper with this book. Yes, the story was good, but the vocabulary was astounding! Here's a few highlights...
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...
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...
so deep through my veins
That I think of you, in spite of the pain.
Heavy is my heart I can’t bear
The music of life no more I want to hear.
Though with words I play to divert my mind
I can’t, my thoughts with you are all entwined.
All my random thoughts I submit in your...
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...
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...
feel your essence with thoughts rare
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
Most of the time I chalk it up to being a typo, but more and more I see people misusing this particular not-quite-homonym, so I'd like to set the record straight (as if anyone but me actually cares, lol).
Below are the first 10 definitions of each from Dictionary.com...
I have had health problems growing up so I spent a lot of time just being sick and unable to do a lot. Books are like my form of travel and adventure. They are my passport to all sorts of experiences. Yes I watch movies and TV and stuff but its not the same. When I open a book I...
and the Pauper with daughter. You may remember my last post about how many times ********* appears in the book. WELL get this!!! Today we were reading and she was going along nicely when she looked at this words and tried to pronounce it, and looked at me like, is that right? I...
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...
