How to use pocket in a sentence?

  1. Anthony Liccione:

    I put all my words on paper. Delicately my life comes in and out with the flow of ink, thinking this is the reason for this. I want to believe. The shadowed streets I had to bare, forking into the next. No spoon in my pocket to feed, absent of love. This is the reason for those cored of humanity, that feel cheated of life. How far do we run. How far do we crawl. How far, is far enough, before we return to spiral again. Salvation. Salvation is like salt in the vein, that fuels the numbness. We all want to be saved. Safe from harm and pain, preseved from the pervasive animosity that grows in the reoccurring years. But we are never safe. Vulnerable to the bitterness that we bite off and swallow.

  2. Kin [F. McKinney] Hubbard:

    The safest way to double your money is to fold over once and put it in your pocket.

  3. Irene Haas:

I didnt go out looking for an age gap or someone really younger than me, he explained. I met Laura Savoie at a business event and then the relationship developed. You have no control over who you fall in love with, he continued. I dont fall in love easily. But I cant let what a few people think control all that. Ive been married three times and this is the final one, I know it is. I feel like I have a real partner in life. Quaid was previously dating longtime girlfriend Santa Auzina, whom he was last photographed with in December 2018, People Magazine reported.
