Slept Longer Than Time

Earlier to this morning, dew melt my glassy heart; I had woken with my nose behind my pillow, I must have passed out whilst the breeze wrestled.

Realizing what was to come for the task ahead, my mind skipped a beat; So ill my mind but still I had to reach my arms for support.

Rolling my eyeballs to the wall clock in front, my glance turned a gaze when I saw “9 O’clock”; I nearly collapsed in my collapsed state, but was strong enough to stand and see if it’d stopped working the previous night!

The unusual silence of the caged fowl behind my window pickled my intestine, lo and behold; the water closet wasn’t far fetched!

In my mind, I’d not slept for long; but callings made the nights far spent beyond product! “I had slept early to the night and woke up very late in the morning” I wondered!

In my closed self-contained apartment, rushed the necessary and gave up the ghost to the just warmed refrigerated-concoction!

I Stepped outside, My key was still between it’s hole when I realized I just had my breakfast for dinner!

      @elovepoetry, *smiles…yeah it is! ♡̬̩̃̊ƭћªΩќs♡̬̩̃̊… Have u ever witnessed such a mini-occurrence?

      1. Yeah @Kleavajimcy, quite a number of times. Well, you have a good way with words

    Er, you didn’t really tell this in a funny manner o. The reader may imagine yes, but you failed to do justice to the story and show us the comedy in it.

    Try again, comic writs are by far the hardest to write. I admire your courage.

      I understood your figure… But the presentation of the story majorly depends on the incident! And the funny bit here happened in a flash…never meant to be funny from the outset, rather “all the way”… ‘Tis meant to be in a flash; and that I hope was quite achieved!
      ♡̬̩̃̊ƭћªΩќs♡̬̩̃̊ for reading and commenting!
      Jah bless!

  2. This was made funny just by the last line, and was helped along because we have good imaginations plus we might have suffered such.
    I don’t know if the words ‘Incorrect word usage’ would become a signature for your posts. Some words here are not meant to be used in the context where you employed them, and some were just unnecessary.
    Take your time, and go through your posts and try reading aloud. It helps to weed out the unwanted.
    Keep writing. Well done, Klea. $ß.

      @sibblywhyte…Awww! Always having probs with the way people interpret some poetic phrases! You are not meant to explain some words the way they appear after all… I don’t write straight write ups like normal english letter, news, articles or novels… Each of my writeup has its own element of poetry! Maybe u shld try point out the words u don’t understand.. Trust me to explain that for you! Taking your time on some lines will do you better helps! “Earlier to this morning, dew melt my glassy heart…” That’s a poetic package dat explains what wonder had happened to my heart!…U can explain d irrational d way u like; the fact remains something unusual happened quite before this morning! Can a dew melt a glass? Hell №!
      ♡̬̩̃̊ƭћªΩќs♡̬̩̃̊ for commenting…I’d appreciate your constructive criticism anytime! God bless you!

      1. Klea, I recall you have used similar words as explanations in a previous post of yours to @topazo.
        I do take an exception to the first sentence, because the operative word there should be YOU not people.
        To assume that I may not have understood this is kinda laughable. Trust me bro, there are few things I’ve read on NS and not understood – rubbish and all. And I make sure to ask or tell the writer, yours isn’t in the group.
        Poetic prose or ‘prosetry’, there are writers who have ‘mastered’ the act, I won’t tell you to go learn from them. You may get there yourself.
        We all learn as we go, if we are willing.
        When you write a piece that I can constructively criticize, be sure Klea, I will.
        Till then, keep writing. $ß.

          @sibblywhyte…c’mon! When I said ‘people’, I meant ‘people’…”YOU” just happen to be a subset of “PEOPLE” as of the case!…and I like d way take us back to d Issh with topazo; that makes it all even! Well, if I had used more words and phrases than usual, I’d say I got issue with some of them. But this particular post have ranged through my body system over and over, just coz it’s of few lines…and I still don’t know which of the words deserve the tagged “misuse of words”. Anyways, lemme just act like I understood you… Though I get the better part of your advice…All writers need that tho’! We can’t stop learning; and we shouldn’t stop learning! Thnks for your pieces once again, I hope my next post will not be d one to receive d gesture in ur last line! Thnks and thnks!
          God bless you

    2. You are right @sibbylwhyte, it’s the last line.

      1. @elovepoetry. Subtle way of getting me here? Hehe.
