something with feeling

I want you to write

something

with real feeling she said

something you care about

I was about ten or eleven yrs old

liked English

cos I got to write

imagine new worlds

I put down

how I’d not seen my mother

in five years

had no idea

where she was

but I knew that I missed her

what I had

these peasants in charge

was no second prize

substitute

the loss of love

the empty space

& she gave me a B-

lacked style she said

some grammar errors

it was then I realized

English lit is corrupt

as a study in literature

for expressing my soul

any real feeling
