296 Entries for “amount”

  1. It matters not how hard I try or what I say. No amount of words will ever make you understand how I’m feeling. The black pit of despair that resides between my lungs and presses against my rib cage as it tries to consume me. No amount of pills or therapy or talking it out will ever help me. You just can’t see that.

  2. mound of sugar
    dumped into my oatmeal
    stirred around and licked up
    off the countertop
    straight down the throat
    this is not poetry
    this is not a poem
    forgive me

  4. broken hands
    ached wrung to dry
    fidgeted fidgety
    wonderful wondering why
    the amount of time
    is less than more
    and this life is too short
    every year
    every time
    i open my eyes
    and look at you
    wished wishing well
    how to stay true.

  10. I have been feeling a great amount of sadness lately. This seems proportionate to the amount of happiness I felt during Christmas break. The amount of sadness and anger seems to be disproportionate to the actual feelings that come up during the time I actually work. In other words, work isn’t as bad as I feel it is.

  11. No amount of coddling, prodding, cajoling or begging was going to get her to change her mind. She sure was darn stubborn for a little kid. Qualities admirable in a adult, but pretty tough in a two year old.

  13. I stared at the treasure in slack jawed awe. Right before me lay a pile of gold and jewels taller than me. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Finally I let out a whoop of joy, started running in slow motion towards my one true love, money, and then I woke up.

  14. The amount of time I have waited to have an opportunity like this has felt like an eternity. I wish I could handle myself better in the amount of time I had to spend with her but there is no point in fixating on what I did wrong. Next time I have to start up a conversation about anything so I can lay down a base for the next step.

  15. the cash money man. Amount. Quantification. Which requires division. Which is indeed false. As there is only one thing which is the thing in itself. All other things requiring separation and individuation are illusory. Yeah. Schopenhauer.

  18. Would we care about our portion of infinity? The zero sum game of life catches us in our most selfish state and we horde all we can, gripping it tightly; trying to retain what we can only receive by letting go.

  19. The amount of alcohol Marion had consumed in her flapper days was appalling. Even now that she was up to her old tricks, she did not have nearly that much to drink. Because that much of this swill was damnably dangerous.

    He glared.
    I narrowed my eyes.

    SilverTongue: Isn’t it? We saved that girl’s life.

    Will I amount to anything? From someone elses perspective I’m perfect

    I believe in someone whose identity weighs the most.

  24. The coins scattered across the red stained counter, followed by a broken look of defeat upon her face.
    “As much mixed candy this can buy.”
    The man behind the counter looked startled. It was a small town after all. Strangers weren’t kindly looked upon here, especially one that looked like her.
    “Right away, miss.”
    The man’s back turned, and so did the girl’s spirits. Where on earth was that damned boy?

  25. the amount of times i think about the word amount, the quantity, it is consuming in this culture. No one seems to care about quality its all about amount. How much can i get for my money and not what can i get for my money. people dont stop and tend to think, what will this do to my body, will this last me, is this a wise investment. it is all about amount, and that is very unfortunate.

  29. I wouldn’t consider it something that could be measured by quantifiable means or amounts. Rather it’s a bit elusive–a charge of some sort of energy that makes one do things they never thought they would do.

  31. The amount of something never matters half as much as we think at the time, however we can all look back and see that it’s the things we get, say and do and the quality of these things that we will take pride in, and most obviously not the sheer amount.

  32. “You’ll never amount to anything,” they said. “You’ll never make it. You’ll spend your working life sweeping the streets.”

    Screw dyslexia.

  35. All of this amounts to — what? A lot of wishes and desires and goals but nothing tangible, nothing I could count. I didn’t know how much I had. I didn’t know how much I could lose. But I wanted more.

    By magdelina URL on 01.02.2013

  36. Well amount means the how much and most often it is the amount of things. Or the amount of love. Where did the word amount come from. It sounds like is should have something to do with horses. because its a mount. Just like therapist is the rapist.
