i really screwed this up earlier in class and really disappointed myself and i am probably never showing my face to my english teacher again and i know what’s done is done but it can really dent ya
but i thought i’d post this on a whim (and to please one classmate who actually enjoyed hearing this from me because it reminded her of her otp (yeah same))
so here it is
this is the unabridged version
i had trouble fitting it all in two damn minutes so i changed a whole lot
(but i think i wrote it pretty well then again i suck so whatever)
so here’s all of it
"Oh, When I Sleep, Come by My Bed" is a short, almost whimsical play on verses of sorts. Through these words, Victor Hugo came to capture the moment of longingness of one person for another.
I didn’t think it was going to be what I saw when I looked into his eyes. What a surprise it was.
He’s never been expressive of his feelings. Of anything, really. But I’ve always been able to read through him so easily. It’s just the eccentric dynamic of our friendship.
And it’s a rather eccentric friendship at that.
But back to those eyes.
Those eyes that rivaled the ocean in depth. Those eyes that inadvertently invited only me far into its trenches.
Those eyes that took my breath away but resuscitated me all the same.
Those eyes I love so much…
I can’t help it, really, getting upset, over the fact that when I do come by to wish him sweet dreams, I won’t see them. Those dark sapphire orbs. So beautiful, so enticing…
But seeing him in itself is just as amazing.
He’s never been so pleading, or needy. But I saw it when he held onto me for a second and brought his gaze upon mine. I got the message when our eyes clicked, though his expression, impassive as always, didn’t help much with getting it across. He knew I had business to attend to, and he set his pride aside to put himself after my priorities. Typical for him, but so damn endearing to me.
He’s always been like that.
I only answered with a smile, then we parted ways.
Now I’m getting ready to see him. He’s probably already asleep. I don’t mind, I’m still going.
I would enter his little flat in my usual carefree demeanor, but I wouldn’t wake him.
I would tip-toe my way over to his bed, where he would be passed out with one of his arms dangling off the mattress, with his mouth open and drool dribbling down his chin.
And I know he hates being touched, even when he’s asleep. But I wouldn’t be able to help myself. I would gently fix his arm next to him, so he could be more comfortable, tilt his chin up, close his lips for him, so nothing would fly into his mouth.
I would stay where I am and resist the temptation of crawling into bed with him.
Then I would watch him a minute longer, maybe twenty, a hundred… Even though I promised I wouldn’t dawdle.
Then I would see his brows furrow, his lips cleave, and his breathing accelerate.
And I would realize what’s causing this, and move closer. I would caress his face with a touch so light it would shame feathers, I would mumble a few words of comfort to him.
I would stay with him until all the unsettling thoughts have left him, until that peaceful smile materializes on that lovely face of his.
Then I would kiss him good night, sweetly, and tell him I love him.
And then I would be gone before he awakes. Oh? But he would know. He would always know.
"When I sleep, come by bed," ?
Sure, I will. Of course I will.
about a couple of months ago for english class we were asked to write narratives to help ourselves through practice/examples master subject-verb agreement and the tenses
i wrote a narrative based on the maine’s “these four words”
and today, those papers were shown to us
mine was lengthier than it should have been, you see
but i got a lengthy side note from our (oh so lovely) teacher and it said
Note: The narrative is well-written and interesting, but perhaps you were writing too passionately that you exceeded the required no. of sentences. Nevertheless, it is still impressive. Continue writing. You’re doing a great job!
but i got a one point deduction in the mechanics criterion for writing 11 compound-complex sentences instead of the required 5-8. damn it… so i only got a 19 over 20, BUT STILL
I CAN’T HANDLE FLATTERY WELL I AM SO ELATED THAT I WAS (somehow) COMPLEMENTED ON MY WRITING
I’VE NEVER THOUGHT THAT I WRITE “PASSIONATELY”
I MAY NEVER REALLY PURSUE WRITING BUT
NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT, I DO LOVE WRITING
when i learn a new word, i itch to use it in as many elaborate sentences as i could, kind of like clinging to a new friend you made
(((ALSO TODAY WE RE-CHECKED OUR ENGLISH QUARTERLY EXAM AND
i got a special (kind of) mention for writing down my arguments and/or side-comment as to why i got the answers i got
let’s take for example this one question that asked which question would elicit a specific answer, and i wrote down specific answers to all the questions in the choices until i found one that matched that which i believed to be the correct answer
and she said she smiled while checking my paper
aND THAT SHE APPRECIATES IT, WHAT I DID
she even went on to tell my classmates (who probably couldn’t care less, really) that had they looked at my paper, they would see these arrows and comments and oh JESUS)
ALL THE WHILE SHE WAS TALKING, I ONLY MADE A POOR ATTEMPT AT HIDING MY FACE BECAUSE MY CHEEKS FELT HOT AND
this wasn’t really related you see)))
man i really
love english class
and i look forward to more writing assignments
this is an overdue post from me
not really i didn’t promise anything but
anyway just so you know i’m still alive
for the lack of anything else to post, really, i’m going to post about a project i’m doing for a class (yes i can’t get any more specific than that)
i’m doing it on half of half an illustration board (half twice because i haven’t cut it yet)
and i hate myself because i can’t really draw people
me uhm yes i can’t draw people (yet) so i’m drawing them as conan characters
this is funny because i inadvertently modeled the characters after kaito and aoko lol and sOMEONE THOUGHT I WAS DRAWING SHINICHI AND RAN LOL (you have to be watching/reading conan/&kaito to get it THEN it would be funny)
(penned them down)
lol correction fluid is so stupid it’s proved to be an adversary rather than an ally tHANKS A LOT i guess it is my fault for making mistakes but come on i’d like a little help and reassurance yeah???
drawing a maze in the background
i’d like to experience being in a maze someday (but i can’t quit in the middle of it ((literally)) so i don’t know really)
and this is how it looked when i decided to call it a night last night (redundant)
fact: dana /never/ gauges how much ink she may need to use for a project before she gets started on it ((elastic is wrapped around the part of the pen saying how much ink she had before she started))
i hope i can finish it real soon………………………..
sorry for having you read this incomprehensible post
it looks more like a bunch of ramblings by someone much like an idiot if not an idiot really than an update
how are you? hope all is well!
(for y’all in the dc tag that don’t recognize me i’m ahotoxin xo)
