• Theresa commented on the post, bicycle 4 years, 9 months ago

    I saw the shiny handlebars through the wrapping paper. No matter how much I was expected to wait to “open” the gift, I couldn’t stand it. My eight year old legs and lack of control took the handlebars and tore senselessly. Sweat pouring down my back inside a down jacket, feet pumping furiously on the pedals, racing around the block unbeknownst…[Read more]

    I’m so grateful that I have work and friends and a place to live and a good kid and a good voice because i love to sing and the things that get me down are just bullshit lines playing in my head

  • Theresa commented on the post, forefront 5 years, 5 months ago

    The most ridiculous shit crowds the forefront of my mind when I need to concentrate on something serious. I obsess over things out of reach, and this is not something new. Ever since I was 12 and my Dad dropped out of my life, I have been searching for something, always. It’s tiring.

  • Theresa commented on the post, personality 5 years, 5 months ago

    A word, if you would. The times I’ve thought about personalities: how they interact, how they repel….and attract, could amount to a tesseract of time. I just had to get something out off the top of my head or else I’d head to bed in a state of disrepair, so I repent at this keyboard in hopes I can sleep more.

  • Theresa commented on the post, commissioned 5 years, 8 months ago

    I had long awaited the moment when I would have enough to ask. Enough gall, enough fortitude, enough CASH. It was seething through me, this desire to immediately cut and run to get what I had waited so tenaciously for…..but I couldn’t leave yet because I had to finish my sensory deprivation session.

  • Theresa commented on the post, improv 5 years, 8 months ago

    Well, this whole site is about improv, no? when I get a chance to spew thoughts in a completely and dizzily orchestrated jumble, it somehow makes me feel like I got something off my chest. I am tired of reading other people’s thoughts and wondering why I spend my time thinking about someone else’s day.

    in this instant i am wailing some inxs at the top of my lungs…..they can never TEAR US APART!!! boom! Saxophone soloooooooooooo! I was standinnnnnnnn’….you were there…..two worlds colliding….

  • Theresa commented on the post, joyous 6 years, 1 month ago

    I sat there inside my head wishing myself into the present. If only I could tap into the positive energy at this ever so joyous occasion. My own wedding. And here I am with my mascara running down my cheeks and a stranger’s face in the mirror. My crossroads was approached at an alarming rate. How did I get myself into this mess?

  • Theresa commented on the post, pairs 6 years, 2 months ago

    I must have owned at least a hundred pairs of shoes throughout my lifetime. One of my favorites was my Adidas Samba Classics I had when I was in 3rd grade. They looked tight with the tight roll jeans, they looked tight with shorts, and went with pretty much anything. I wore them til 5th grade even though they pinched my feet by that time.

  • Theresa commented on the post, sleeved 6 years, 2 months ago

    It was a cold sweat that brought my guts back into my body. The trickle of salty stress beads down my temples almost gave me away, and if it hadn’t been for the doorbell ringing at that moment, I wouldn’t have sleeved that ace.

  • Theresa commented on the post, taboo 6 years, 3 months ago

    It was something that we had avoided for too long
    a tempest laid at our feet to be walked upon
    through the burning bubbling transcendent haze
    the little taboo daughter was unleash’d into the maze

  • Theresa commented on the post, checkmate 6 years, 4 months ago

    Aha! She exclaimed silently in head, a quick glance up at her opponent through thick eyelashes. I know that I have him, she thought. His character like putty in her hands, she molded, caressed, and pawned him into the position she wanted him in. Checkmate.

  • Theresa commented on the post, punished 6 years, 4 months ago

    I cannot seem to break through my passionate self-consciousness….to the point where my confidence is debilitated and my doubt grows exponentially. Will I ever reach an understanding with myself? Must my self-assuredness be continually punished by my over-developed sense of inferiority?

  • Theresa commented on the post, plague 6 years, 4 months ago

    I’ve been plagued by the procrastination bug for far too long. Every deadline is purveyed in my mind as the day I must begin the project. Every meeting I assume I can leave to reach 10 minutes before I’m supposed to be there.

  • Theresa commented on the post, withered 6 years, 5 months ago

    The old vine love growth had not yet withered, despite the arid climate of affection. The hope watered her garden and kept the fruit coming forth.

  • Theresa commented on the post, speech 6 years, 7 months ago

    He would have forced me to make a speech if I hadn’t appealed to his logical side. Did this CEO really expect me to speak in his honor? Logic told him that he is a douchebag.

  • Theresa commented on the post, placed 6 years, 7 months ago

    I had just placed the last item on the table when it hit me…these guys had no clue what I was planning to do with these things! Interesting metal objects can be construed as art….and less often but just as likely a torture device.

  • Theresa commented on the post, amount 6 years, 7 months ago

    no amount of money could blind him to the fact that I had stolen his heart….and the trick was….well….me. And he was the treat. I tasted the sweetness and began to have cravings….and all the while, like a good junkie, I sweet-talked him until I got more of what I craved.

  • Theresa commented on the post, season 6 years, 8 months ago

    the flavor wasn’t strong enough….I wanted bite, savory, and whatever else would make the seasoning more fierce than this blandness I found myself chomping on…

  • Theresa commented on the post, stir 6 years, 8 months ago

    She was dancing in her little dress….backless, short, and to the point. The sexy spectacle caused quite a stir at the wedding reception.
