Words That Are Their Own Opposites 🏆

A  L  O  H  A !

"Janus word is a word (such as cleave) having opposite or contradictory meanings depending on the context in which the word is used. Also called antilogy, contronym, contranym, autantonym, auto-antonym, and contradictanyma."

I dusted you with sugar,
then I dusted it up.
Your cat should be fixed,
but I hope You never are!

Hold me up high,
but never  hold me up.
I bolt you to my heart,
and will never bolt away!

You were the garnish
in my feast of life,
until your salary 
was garnished.

Familiarity breeds contempt. 
But home is where the heart is. 

And  Opposites attract. 
While birds of a feather 
flock together. 

See? Easy!


Thank YOU
                Fondly, cloudia
