Name It – Poetry Prompt

I remember when it came time to think of names for my children how certain names would remind my husband and I of people we had known. Sometimes those names brought pretty harsh emotions along with them. My husband still hates the name Zack, all because some of some guy with that name he went to school with.

The point is, there is power in a name. I want you to write a love poem today. I want something gushy and romantic and beautiful…

And I want you to write it with a name you despise. I want you to write it to that “person.”

Remember to leave it in the comments below, or leave a link to it so we can all read your work!

Magazine submissions are still open. You’ve only got a few more months to get it in, so get writing! You can always submit to our Write for Us segment, though.
