I Need A Dictionary

Captivated, Elongated, Mitigated:
You're a lot of looming words,
I wish I understood.

Castellated, Estivated, Manhatten-ated,
I'm a bunch of bounding phrases,
I hope you travel through.

It's always easier to hide ourselves, behind big words or silence, than let pple right in. This one is my favorite too; it's accessible and truthful. Plus...I'm a fna of big vocab. Best of inspiration, Colette
GREAT. can totally relate! ! i often make the words up as i go, as it suits the situation. do hope they travel thru too, but i mostly do it for my own growth.
this is my favorite of yours I think, so powerfully creative! ! Especially that first word...maybe just because that's the only one I know! ! -landrey
