words that are people (person)
Return to words that are people (person)
Did you ever encounter a word that so wholly and completely described a person?
At first, I was almost certain she was an [angel]. A delicate, [azureus]-eyed, [porcelain doll] with hair like [zero-g fire] and [invisible wings]. I was sure that if I squinted hard enough, or looked at the [critical angle|right angle], I might catch the [moonlight diffracting]. Or if I caught her early enough the [morning mist], that so frequently rolls off the [Atlantic], might [ghost|dew on her wings]. I never did, she always caught me staring, and she never was an early riser. There's still a [space on her back where her wings ought to be].
She wasn't a bad person, perhaps it was her [fall from grace] that made her [cold]. Like the [glacier-blue] of her eyes.
She would [burn] those that tried to get close. Not by design, but not without inaction either, just by her [nature]. [boys|Moths] would be [drawn to her], inexplicably. I still bear my [scars|burns].
I don't know if [intent|she burned people because she was cold], or if [defence|she was cold because she burned people]. Either way, her eyes never really [sparkled]. Sometimes, on the dance floor, she'd [lose herself] to the music, and I liked to think she'd forgotten herself and was back in [Elysium], just for a track.
