    Transmisson. That’s what it might as well be called, this letter. There’s a real stamp on the front, a real address in my hand, but the person on the end seems like a dream. Transmission–it sounds as if I am the captain of a crew when I am alone. But here is my message to the moon…

  • Patri commented on the post, chain 7 years, 2 months ago

    Chain. On a bike. The ones that get all broken when they come loose, and the ones that get all black and sticky and nasty whenever you touch them because of all the oil. Where the heck does that oil come from, […]

  • Patri commented on the post, zone 7 years, 2 months ago

    My own zone. The place I go to when I need to cool off, the place I go to to be apart from the rest of the world for a while. Where I don’t think, I DO. Or maybe I’ll just sit, and listen to music, or think. It’s […]

  • Patri commented on the post, want 7 years, 3 months ago

    Want is such a gross-sounding word. You want, but most of the time you don’t need. You want, but maybe it’s just out of greed. You want, but you can’t have. You want, but you’ll NEVER have. You want, but you’re […]

  • Patri commented on the post, approval 7 years, 3 months ago

    The hardest thing is to ask for approval after you’ve done something wrong. Yelled at your parents because they just can’t SEE what they’re doing WRONG! And then in the middle of storming away, you remember that […]

  • Patri commented on the post, texts 7 years, 3 months ago

    Texting while driving, one of the worst things you can do to yourself.

    “I’m setting a bad example,” says my mentor in the driver’s seat, driving and texting.

    Not only a bad example, but a dangerous […]

  • Patri commented on the post, manners 7 years, 3 months ago

    Ah, manners.

    They tell you to have manners doing things like having dinner with a friend. But the thing is, manners are what set you apart. They make everything seem so distant, so strange and weird and […]

  • Patri commented on the post, substances 7 years, 3 months ago

    Substances are things. You can have a sweet substance, which could be juice. You could have a thick substance, which could be blood. You could have a clear substance, which could be water. You are a substance … you.

  • Patri commented on the post, puncture 7 years, 3 months ago

    It was like a knife, stabbing into my heart as I entered the room and my eyes found them. Holding hands. My best friend, and the boy I had been in love with long before her. And she’d lied to me, told me she only […]

  • Patri commented on the post, dare 7 years, 3 months ago

    “Truth or dare?”

    It was a little scary, sitting in a circle with friends both boy AND girl … there was a hint to the air that was a bit dangerous and a bit nervous. What kind of questions would be asked? What […]

    Um … cameras take pictures.

  • Patri commented on the post, trap 7 years, 3 months ago

    Every word she said was like a trap, and one filled with poison at that. Nobody wanted to hear her speak for fear of being tangled to death amidst the web she’d spun with her lies.

  • Patri commented on the post, methods 7 years, 3 months ago

    Methods are the way you do something. A method is like a strategy, and sometimes it’s not the best one either. I’ve found that sometimes the best method is the one you agree on after a good amount of thinking […]

  • Patri commented on the post, losses 7 years, 3 months ago

    Losses.

    What have I lost?

    I lost him, when he went to a different school. I tried to hang on as best I could … I sent him emails often. But eventually i ended up giving up.

    I lost another him and my […]

  • Patri commented on the post, principal 7 years, 3 months ago

    Principals are nice. Most that I’ve come by have been women, yet there’ve still been plenty of men as well. It must be hard … everybody just believes by bias that you’re someone to be avoided, when really you’re […]

    Cabinets carry anything, from books to plates, bowls and other cutlery, knicknacks, odds and ends.

  • Patri commented on the post, props 7 years, 3 months ago

    Back in drama, we’d have to come up with our own props. However, we’d always come up with brilliant costumes and whatever we needed; you can count on finding anything one needs for a play at home, granted you have […]

  • Patri commented on the post, statement 7 years, 3 months ago

    “What is wrong with this statement?”

    It’s not a statement at all.

    Only make a statement if you know what you’re saying is true, or if you really believe in it.

    There are no stupid questions; only inquisitive idiots.

  • Patri commented on the post, gum 7 years, 3 months ago

    One can get tired of chewing the same flavor of gum over and over again; bubble gum flavored gum is disgusting and overly sugary.

    The prettiest thing is gum walls, even though they’re also one of the most […]

  • Patri commented on the post, holder 7 years, 3 months ago

    Holders … hold. Sometimes they’re inanimate objects … envelopes, for example, holding letters that sometimes you wish you hadn’t read. Sometimes they’re people. Holding secrets, that sometimes get looser than […]
