For the 2021 November PAD Chapbook Challenge, poets are tasked with writing a poem a day in the month of November before assembling a chapbook manuscript in the month of December. Today’s prompt is to write a love and/or anti-love poem.
It’s time for our second Two-for-Tuesday prompt of the month. For today’s prompt:
Write a love poem, and/or…Write an anti-love poem.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Love and/or Anti-Love Poem:
every word i ever wrote is a lie
if i ever said i couldn’t love you more
because here i am on this autumn night
singing “je t’aime, je t’aime” just like a bore
je t’aime, i say it, because it is true
i’m always falling more in love with you
