    My love for you runs

    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...

    Position Vacant

    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...

    Word On The Ep Streets .......

    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...

    Murder In the Museum of Man

    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...

    People often say I talk to much

    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!!!

    Dissonance.

    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 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...

    Funny Words...

    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.  I’ve...
