Freebase

  1. Prose

    Prose is a form of language which applies ordinary grammatical structure and natural flow of speech rather than rhythmic structure. While there are critical debates on the construction of prose, its simplicity and loosely defined structure has led to its adoption for the majority of spoken dialogue, factual discourse as well as topical and fictional writing. It is commonly used, for example, in literature, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, broadcasting, film, history, philosophy, law and many other forms of communication.

Examples of PROSE in a Sentence

  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Every person has the right to throw the home rubbish in the dustbin. Similarly, the mental rubbish through prose and poetry also can throw. We say that, too, as the freedom of writing and speech. The guilt is ours, why do we put our hands, in the trash.

  2. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Hot brunette Black eyes as black space, I plunge into endless love and true happiness, the stars of passion burn in them. Your eyes are capable of bewitching any man with their amazing beauty, their charms turn him into a puppet. A sexual secret immersed in an infinitely deep love, increasing your invaluable value in my life to infinity. More than anything else, I am afraid of losing you, my soul will die from this terrible pain of suffering. You are a living legend of the highest beauty, real, but mythically beautiful. Your body is like a sexy pattern, hot eroticism of temptation, you are perfect from any angle near and you have issued a silhouette of perfection, my mind raves about you at night, I fall asleep from passionate love and see you in my treasured erotic dreams, I'm frightening obsessed with your beauty and soul. So beautifully your wine spills over your sexy body, exciting the amazing shine of your body, the heady beauty of sensual charm, your chosen one possesses eternal wealth, you are the most valuable thing in eternity and the universe itself, you are a dream that you can dream of forever even after death , you are much more expensive and more beautiful than any gemstone. Perfectly black long hair as if shining with black opal, lush lips like rose quartz, which will give a juicy, savory, hot, sultry, torrid kiss, I eagerly taste every kiss and in my eyes there are millions of sparks, billions of love sparks, we are among the stars of love, it’s super exciting and sincerely in love, dark-skinned skin, juicy caramel of priceless gold, nowhere is sweeter and sexier, elite beauty is like the representative of the highest races of all universes, tenderly sensually milky chocolate skin of a sultry brunette goddess of dirty secret dreams. The voice is like a cute kitten, you are an infinitely cute cutie. All the most beautiful melodies and songs about you, all the most romantic is nostalgia about you. Your sweet moans of pleasure is my favourite music, which I want to listen to all my life, it’s brutally exciting and never bothers. I want an entire album and a huge playlist with your hot moans, I want to listen all days all my life, it’s the only thing that excites and never bothers that away turn off my brains. All my dreams are about you. Your body is so hot and beautiful, it’s just tin, your image powerfully falls in love, it toughly excites this simply bliss for my eyes. Beautiful well, just meow ... juicy. Infinitely powerful exciting, infinitely growing intensifying love and admiration, like endless, aggressive masturbation of endless love sex without orgasm, so sexually exciting that you can just go crazy from love and lust, an unquenchable thirst to love and caress your body an infinite number of times, it’s hard to breathe and I seem lose consciousness from admiration. You are the embodiment of my most sincere dirty, erotic, hot, vulgar sex fantasies, desires, my new instinct called vulgar love that I named after you, there is a tattoo with your name and your portraits on my soul. I'm fanatically sick of you. I lie and kiss your body with my eyes. You amaze me with your beauty to the very depths of your soul; my whole brain is amazed with you; you are my reality and eternal sexy thought; everything except you melts like ice cream from your sultry hot sun, like the sun of beauty. You have a divinely sweet skin color, you are more appetizing than any dishes in the world, I cry with love and admiration, I am ultra powerfully in love with you to look at you as it is sexual pleasure in itself - this is an amazing magic of seduction in your eyes excites a powerful hunger for sex - this is an eternal call to your flesh. Hardcore mega harsh excitement makes horny, brutal passion, animal lust, mixed with sincere love. You amaze me with your beauty to the very depths of your soul, my whole mind is amazed by you, your body is very beautiful porn, you can write an infinite number of love poems and prose, you are an inexhaustible waterfall of love, erotic inspiration. My heart eloquently poeticizes your sultry, divine image. My mind prays that you will be mine literally every day. Each room has an altar to worship every part of your hot sexy body. Sex with you is the ultimate bliss. It’s so eternally beautiful, infinitely beautiful and immensely sexy that it crosses all borders. Unbearably exciting right up to a pleasant pain in my soul, thoughts, heart, I start to moan and utter your name with pleasure, oh yeah baby, oh yeeaaah, **** how sexy, sooo hooot, you are an ultra powerful sex machine of excitement makes powerfully horny, I am programmed for eternal love for you, my the psyche has totally switched to you. Of all the desires of all lives, I choose only you. Your appearance is your ego fly away. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  3. Paul Valery:

    ...in song the words tend to lose their significance, do often lose it, while at the other extreme, in current prose it is the musical value that tends to disappear - so that verse stands symmetrically, as it were, between song, on the one hand, and prose on the other - and is thus admirably and delicately balanced between the sensual and the intellectual power of language.

  4. Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire:

    People have declaimed against luxury for 2000 years, in verse and in prose, and people have always delighted in it.
