Spelling of an Unloved Person

April 10, 2011
How do you spell love?
How do you spell love?
He says
She says M-O-N-E-Y
How do you pronounce love?
How do you pronounce love?
Bruised –Kissed – Skin
He says Be-trayl
She says Mis-take
He says Dri-nk
She says The-Bed
And I say not real
but the teacher says
How do you spell love?
Guess i'll just keep on a trying till the words
taste right in my mouth
But teacher please be patient for if I spell love
Know that I am trying and learning
And if I have to i'll write love fifty times over on a single piece of paper
Till I get it right
How do you spell love?

An interesting poem. I liked what you were trying to say. Pretty good on clarity. A few weak spots, but overall, you have a really great idea at the base of it all. Not sure I understood the title. Would you please comment on my poems titled Without the Writer and the Printer? I would really love your input on them! :)
