dear megan,

i think that we'd be amazing together. i'd write you little letters on post-it notes
and even though we're hundreds of miles apart, i hope you'd write back. when
i'd get them, i'd sit at the foot of my bed and read them by the glow of the
fireflies drifting through my window. i would think of you and i'd sigh while i read,
because you must be made up of harp-strings and six-o'-clock sunlight
(that golden hue would really highlight your cheekbones) to be able to think of
such beautiful sentences.

i hope you'd be able to read my messy handwriting and scratched-out words and
think that even though i'm not as good as you, at least i was making an effort.
megan, i'd be trying to make you happy.
and i know i'll never amount to much, at least, not compared to him. because
when you do find him (and i know you will, because you aren't the kind of girl
who stops looking) he'll be perfect for you. but before you find him, i know you'll have some rough times, and you'll compare your life to the turbulent, stormy sea.
and i expect that you'll need someone there to  listen to you. i'd be that someone, if you let me.

i'd be that someone, because, i think you're going to need to hear that
the ocean is wild, yes, but it's brilliant too. and what i want, megan, is to be the
one to show you how stunningly irridescent lightning can be against a raven-night
sky. but that wouldn't be the only thing i'd open your eyes to.

i'd draw hearts and fishscale patterns on your arms and on your knees while looking out across the wide-open expanse of sky.
i would give you dolphins and moonbeams and teach you how to breathe in starfish and eloqence and show you that the only thing running through your veins
is salt water. the only thing i'd ask for in return is your friendship and if you'd walk with me to the beach to watch the sunset.

thinking of you, i can almost see you walking into some store and fingering the
hem of a lustrous skirt and whispering wistfully, "that color would be so pretty if it were a pair of angel wings." and hearing that, i'd know exactly what to get
you for your birthday. i'd spend all my time with you, watching how you walk, memorizing the melody of your breath, examining you smiling to distinguish
which smile was fake and what wasn't. learning you. (or at least, attempting to.
i don't know how much of you i'd be able to comprehend.)

and what i would do is put all these discoveries into a tiny glass box and lock it up. i'd wear the key around my neck, so that it {you} would never get lost. and then i'd spin all these flax-golden tales into a spool of thread as striking as a supernova.
slowly, little by little, i'd use these cords to sew you a pair of wings. they'd be
a patchwork of tears and darkness, but with shades of laughter and butterfly kisses. and i would help you fasten them on with a safety pin and i promise,
i made them so that if you decide to fly close to the sun, they won't break.

but megan, all i'm trying to tell you is that you're gorgeous and evanescent and i can understand you like a shadow can be pinned to a cork-board.
your work is inspiring, and it'll be remembered long after i am gone. you don't write clichés, but you create them. you don't use metaphors, you just breathe them.
so megan, you are thrilling and exceptional and dazzling and i don't want you to
forget it because no matter what someone might take from you or say about you, you're always going to be
the most beautiful girl in the world.

love,
(yes, love)
               gina.
dear megan,
i hope you understand how much you mean to me. and even if we are galaxies apart, i'd build a bridge made of a thousand burning stars to be there by you. i'd do it so you wouldn't have to feel alone.

dear megan,
i want you to like me.
:heart:

i feel like i connect to this piece more than most pieces i've read. maybe it's because i feel like it's directed to me...?
even though i know it's not.
hi, i'm megan :P and the 'dear megan' drew me in and intrigued me and i couldn't stop reading.

i like it.
nice job.
and =TehAngelsCry shouldn't be talking...until s/he can spell the word 'the'. ^^;

i feel like the lack of capitalization adds to it, it adds a feeling of sincerity. it's like the piece is a whisper in time into a girl named megan's ear and her mind and it's just exceedingly beautiful :heart:
thank you for a work well-written. :)

it's for you now, too. because you are a wonderful person, no matter how far
away you are in the world from me, even if i've never met you. you're amazing.

thank you for commenting :huggle:
i hope you have a lovely day :heart:
PS: i noticed the misspelling of 'the' right away, too ^^

It's really sweet, but remember, "i" should be capitalised - "I". Every. Single. Time.

Such a fundamental error should not occur.

:icon369dreamergirl:
369dreamergirl Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010  Student Writer
sorry, but I *note the capitalization for you* strongly dislike capitals.
it makes everything look like there is a beginning and an end. and there isn't.
in formal writing, I agree. capitalization is essential. however, in my poetry and
prose, I feel as though poetic license should be granted and capitalization should be
the writer's choice. (I dislike pE0pLe wH0 tYpE lIkE tHiS though. it's a terrible affliction.)

:icontehangelscry:
TehAngelsCry Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
Hmm, I do see where you're coming from. But with no capitalisation, with no clear indicator of where an idea begins and ends, it's very difficult to read a piece of work. Granted poetical license could give you a means to disregard the rules which have been ingrained into us since childhood, but, when have you ever seen a published poem which doesn't follow these rules?

Not to mention, this is a piece of prose. Not poetry. Therefore, I really think capitalising should be maintained.
Reply
:iconthefireflyliberation:
I am totally intruding on this, but I felt like I would insert my two cents. In poetry, there are actually a plethora of published [and very successful] poets who ignore the rules of capitalization. E.E. Cummings, for example. Yes, this piece is what would formally be considered "prose," but in actuality it falls into a smaller category referred to as "prosetry." It's poetry in the form of prose, or, prose with the use of poetic elements. There is a wide plethora of artists on this site and in the published world who don't capitalize, it's purely up to the discretion of the writer. So, while obviously there are several people who's fancy this doesn't tickle, the beauty of art is that it's subjective. Absolutely no disrespect intended, because I think you articulated your opinion very well, I just have no ability to censor myself.

None taken. I like reading different peoples' opinions. I guess you could say I have a very closed mindset when regarding such things. Personally I find it very difficult to read a piece which doesn't have any capitalised letters.

But thank you for inputting your opinion on this =)
Reply
:iconthefireflyliberation:
I wouldn't consider it a closed mind, I just think you know what you like. I don't see anything wrong with that :] I just find it pleasurable to be able to discuss this in a rational manner with you, it's sad how many people you can find on deviantART who refuse to discuss things like this without taking offense and getting angry. :heart:

Haha yeah I know what you mean. I'm always slightly apprehensive about giving my honest opinion in case the artist goes on a rampant rage against me. Haha, thank you for being reasonable!

I try to keep an open mind about everything, and as you are my elder,
I'm sure you have more knowledge than I upon subjects such as this. Although I am
the younger of the two of us, I would still like to point out that each writer has
their own style of writing and lower-case letters are just one of my ways of
showing my style.
Thank you for the interesting discussion on capitalization and writing rules in general.

TehAngelsCry Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010  Professional Interface Designer
Actually, there're more errors that I first noticed. Remember; every new sentence begins with a capital letter. I don't actually see a single capital letter in your entire piece. Whilst it's nice; it won't go anywhere if it's not properly punctuated.
