There was a plain lady who was lonely and sad. She decided to change and that made her glad. She stopped at a store and bought items galore. No longer plain the lady got her wish. Her new favorite word is now embellish.

I almost can’t remember what this word means. I never use it.
Funny how that works.
Especially since I actually embellish a lot of things when I talk.
I just never say that I “embellish”
I say I blew it out of proportion, or exaggerated. But it’s all the same thing. It’s just embellishing. The definition is the same.

homo homini lupus
I stood in a burning building
you walked in
and held me
is it because you don’t see
the havoc I wreak?
or that you do?
or I’m gone
or I’m on
you beckon beautiful and alien —
my whitest, my blackest
yet we cleave
as if love

God I am never enough and I just want to draw stars and metaphors across my face and tie pretty things around my neck and embellish the lights in my eyes that oh so many claim to see. God I am never enough and I want to sparkle like a Christmas tree on a Monday night in January in the home of a woman who just really loves Christmas and I want to shine that brightly until I am enough for someone. Myself. I just want to be at home in this body and this place and God, is that too much to ask?

I like to think that I don’t embellish when it comes to stories, but the truth of the matter is that just isn’t true. Embellishing is not really lying so much as adding “icing on the cake” to a story which otherwise would have been pretty boring.

I embellish the truth to create the ending I wish reality gave me.

ornate baroque moulding on the ceiling, the walls… the gold leaf on the spoons did nothing to calm my nerves or my growing sense of inferiority

I neither have to diminish nor embellish His love for me. I often drift from the understanding that he promised me life, not death. He gave His Son for me that I would not be condemned, but saved. So that rock I tend to hide UNDER? Well, I’m going to start my climb to the top so that I can stretch out my arms, open my hands and allow God’s grace to shower upon my life. After all, that’s why I was created: to be unconditionally loved.

Is this really necessary, when life already carries intractable complexity, beauty and horror all in one, excess and paucity, why embellish reality? Temperature, days, expressions, acts and facts. All enough, I promise.

I tried doing this assignment last night, but unfortunately I couldn’t find good enough words or thought provoking sentences to embellish and properly convey this word.

The shell lay delicately on the sand. It was a piece of art unto itself, having undergone the weathering of the ocean, and the tread of small children. It was covered in mathematical patterns and pastel colors, enough to remind it’s possesor of childhood memories of teh beach.

your splotchy blushing
and frequent blinking
makes a better sight
than honest eyes
and a sad mouth
that comes with
telling the truth.

She put sequins on everything, her purse, her shoes, coat and curtains. She covered her lightbulb in them so her room was full of sparkles. She covered the walls, painted patterns and rainbows with the plastic jewels. She braided her hair, and filled in her skin.

my house is embellish by my own charms and desires.I love the jovial nature which adds embellish to my house. Embellishes cannot be bought.

To embellish is to capture attention. You can embellish a story verbally, you can embellish an item visually. Embellishment is not necessarily an exaggeration, but rather a way to enhance or change the way others perceive something.

to give you everything of myself without the silly glitter. How I wish you wouldn’t drown me with your shit, the sticky mold that you think will help it all come together… to really make it come to life. I don’t wish to exaggerate anymore

is this something right or wrong
for the good of the story – for the good of yourself?
Who really knows
But at some point you do – you know
and suddenly you see who you are
if you know
if you see
