The Deliciousness of Words – 7

In continuation from earlier… here are some words which have struck a chord with me. I’m going to post them a couple at a time, with explanations, for you to savour. 

And guys, feel free to contribute some more for me to compile, yes?>

This week, is it just me, or are there others who go this sequence at some social occasions? 🙂

Adronitis

(n) Frustration with how long it takes to get to know someone.

Monachopsis

(n) The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.

Rubatosis

(n) The unsettling awareness of your own heartbeat.

 

For those interested, here are the earlier ones in this series:

  1. Great post, hw can I use these in a poem??

    the adrontis between us sets me on edge
    I feel the uneasy distance of monachopsis
    unsettling and untamable
    and so here I sit consumed
    in silence consumed by rubatosis
    a prisoner to my inner self

  2. How about this for the deliciousness of words.? My take on one of the words 😊

    Adronitis

    Frilling the edges
    Foam rolling on the sands
    Illusive to the grasp of my hands
    Stuck in cracks and wedges

    Impatiently ticking the time
    When will your layers fall?
    Softly heeding the unspoken call
    When all that you are will be mine
