Another collection of some fun new words for my readers!

Latibule: Noun. A hiding place; a place of safety and comfort. That would be my bed. Ha

Atelophobia: The fear of imperfection, of not being good enough. Yup, I have that.

Atticism: Noun. Concise and elegant expression, diction, or the like. Pretty word.

Elysian: Adj. Beautiful or creative; divinely inspired; peaceful and perfect. I LOVE this one.

Flumadiddle: Noun. Utter nonsense. This is just fun to say.

Society Crumbling

Standard

I know I made plans to do a different post today, but in all honestly it isn’t ready at all. So instead I am going to post a new poem I wrote this morning. Hope ya’ll don’t mind.

Society Crumbling

Written by Megan Riot Matthews (c)

 

This body was never meant to be held down

Or pushed down the cattle rows with prods

This mind was never created to be controlled

Or cut to pieces by those filled with jealousy

This heart was meant to be broken

But not shattered and left to cut my insides

This soul was never made to be put in a box

Or stifled and muted turning it gray

This person stands before you with a bleeding heart

It still pumps while it sits in her hands

The shards of glass are slicing pieces away

As the blood drips from her finger tips

Her feet become covered and stained

By the pack of bull shit lies this world thrives on

Tears and blood, they mix together

As society watches, they cheer for more

This body was always meant to be more

More than an actress for your pleasure from my pain

So she stands in awe of the desires around her

To wait and watch as she breaks and falls

Wordy Saturday!

Standard

I have always loved words. Words seem to be more powerful than anything. A simple word could make someone smile, laugh, cry, mad, and even destroy someone’s mental state. My Aunt, also a lover of words, has always made it a point to give new words and definitions when she speaks. Something I have always admired. Like my Aunt, I love to find words in different languages and I also really enjoy finding funny words with amazing meanings. I also dive into names. I like learning the reason behind the name. So, today I have 6 words to share. Six words I find interesting, funny, or just plain awesome.

Fard: Verb; to apply cosmetics to your face. This is hilarious.

Redamancy: Noun; The act of loving the one who loves you; a love returned in full. This words just sounds romantic.

Morosis: Noun; The stupidest of stupidest. Perfection.

Whelve: Noun. To bury something deep; to hide. Love this word.

Sillage: French. Noun. The scent that lingers in the air, the trail left in the water, the impression made in space after something or someone has been and gone; the trace of someone’s perfume. So beautiful.

Gleed: Noun. A glowing coal. Just plain cool.

Are there any words you love or just can’t stop saying? Let me know!

Winter is Coming (A Poem)

Standard

The hair raised from my skin

The goose bumps began to rise

My bladder full

I began to whine

It’s too cold in this room

Too cold in this house

Feeling frozen in a no snow

Filled winter wonderland 

Burro and burro

Under the covers

I hug my sweet pit bull

I miss the warmth, the sun

Afraid this cold air

With freeze me into no one

Depression Cocoon 

Standard

When you dont want to budge

Moving seems impossible

The covers seem to devour me

And I give in to my new home

Let the dark sleep

Over take me and heal me

So tired of being sick

This hell, it just wont let go

Wrap me in a cocoon

Transform me into something beautiful

Like a light, bright butterfly

I sink and sink

Let the fog smother me

Good night for now

Until I find the courage to break free

Random Monday!

Standard

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a lovely Monday! I woke up feeling very proactive this morning and decided to get some SHIT done! After some coffee from my french press and a long hot shower, I made a to do list and then actually threw it away. Ha, this never happens!

FIRST THINGS FIRST

I got on pinterest for some essential oil roller ball recipes. I recently just got in some super cute ones from amazon, they are metallic and colorful. I’ve been itching to use them. I made only three, ones I felt were needed.

  1. Sleepy Blend 15 drops of both Lavender and Frankincense and rest Coconut oil
  2. Headache Helper 10 drops Peppermint, 6 drops Lavender, 5 drops Frankincense, and rest Coconut oil
  3. Opening emotions 4 drops Lavender,3 drops Orange, 3 Frankincense, 4 Etsher Annointing Oil, and rest Coconut oil

(These blends are made with Eden Garden’s oils and put in a .5 ml bottles)

         Got any blends you enjoy? Share them!

Second thing I did…

With all my depression and anxiety, plus living with someone else, I’ve been feeling kind of blah when I am home. I decided to cleanse my home of all negative energy with some sage. I love the smell of sage. I immediately feel better when I smell that scent. I also always feel more open to positive energy after I cleanse my home, pups, and self. And as I watch the smoke glide out the window, I feel more welcoming of positive energy.

Do you Sage or cleanse? Tell me your ritual!

After cleaning up the house and doing some laundry, I am now ready to relax and read Lolita. I even got some good writing in this morning! *Kudos to me* 

I love these day where I feel total motivation and no dark raining cloud is following me around.

Have a great rest of your Monday!

There is never any bad advice!

Thanks!
