Verification Words


Don't you just love those "verification" words,
the key that opens the door for comment posts?

The other day, I got a wonderful made-up word.

INTIMID.

I think that's what you are when you're wounded
or inexperienced or worried about how you look,
but you're easing your way
toward intimacy with someone new
ever so slowly.  .  .



with eyes averted when the whole process
gets a little too intense
or the fear rises up like a bulimic episode.
Gently sliding toward connection.




So full of hope, but a bundle of nerves.
Wanting to get close, but holding yourself back
just a little.

Intimid.

You could do a whole series of these - or even a book!

Like your definition, and the new word. :)
How fun! I do that, too sometimes...make up meanings for those goofy words! I hope you are having a great week!...hugs...Debbie
I love the word but even more the photos that feature a woman and man of a "certain age" becoming ever-so-slowly, "intimidly" (is that a word) acquainted with one another. Maybe it is only an adjective and I have created a new one! At any rate it is lovely and so are you.
