Why this numbness? This emptiness?
All is gone...as life slips away through my fingers.
I am so tired! *sigh*
She stood on her terrace,
Deep in thought as she looked around her.
The pleasant breeze swept past her, the cool air filling her as she inhaled.
It was the time of festivities, with lights everywhere.
The wind lifted her hair, it made her smile.
Her mind at peace, she looked above,
The sky was black with only a few stars shimmering.
The black night held her in its awe.
The darkness above and the lights below,
And she between it all.
She separated the two worlds, one of light and revelry
The other of darkness and calm.
It was at this time that He came,
His presence brought a smile to her face.
His feelings for the night were the same as hers,
He looked around and felt the magic of the night engulf him.
He was on his terrace too,
Mystified by the night.
They didn't say much as they took in the night,
Their minds filled with a thousand silent words.
This world only constituted of water, no land.
There was no sun; the world would look amazing seeped in darkness for 24 hours.
Chocolates would be calorie free.
Pain would be sold as a drug.I wish…
I could dig my feet into snow.
I wish…I lived on Pluto instead of on the Earth.
The clouds would be red instead of blue.
There would be no summer, only winter.
I could turn back time.
I was 7 years old.
I was my MPD.
I wish…I wish…I wish.
At last I have passed my elementary French exam with an 82%. Not bad, considering the fact that I was quite bad in the oral exam. In fact I am really relieved, now that my course is over. All the "je", "moi", "toi", "s'il vous plait", "notre", "reseignement", "manger"and "voiture" has done away with my sanity already, not to mention the course and the timings, which made me stay on at college till 6 or sometimes almost 7. This leaves no difference between me and the BBA and BCOM students since we all seem to leave at the same time. Sigh!
But French classes were no bore, neither were they a pain, it’s just the schedule that seems to get the better of me and not to forget the rest of my exhausting day at college.
The course started in August ending this Tuesday, stretching across many Tuesdays and Thursdays, plus extra classes held on some unfortunate Mondays and Fridays leaving me physically and mentally drained.
But all in all French classes were fun...20 blank faced people entering room no.27 that Tuesday in August and 18 laughing Francais etudiantes leaving the MCVV room this Tuesday.
(If you are wondering as to what happened to 2 people, well they quit the course because they had had enough of it already).
It was nice to study French with 17 others who were as unknown about the language as I was, and now we are all qualified enough to speak Francais. The course has been wonderful with all of us making innumerable mistakes and our professor helping us out with it. It sure was fun. All the late classes, a mad rush to the nearest metro station to catch the earliest train and then worry about getting back home as fast possible, but of course, the Kolkata roads have other surprises in store for us, and leave us grumbling forever.
Now that our course is done, we have all separated, and I wonder if we will all come back for the next course...but till then…au revoir!
Je voudrias remercier ma professeur pour enseignant nous francais.
Merci. Au revoir.
