English translation:are you still sleeping, you pretty thing? you probably understand nothing of what I'm writing...
Explanation:
This can be translated into English as: "are you still sleeping you pretty thing? you probably understand nothing of what I'm writing now, isn't it! I wanted (to) ...". As you can see the last sentence ends quite abruptly and is incomplete.
