My apologies! There's always one day when I get the prompt out late, and it appears to be today (nearly made it through the entire month this year). For long-time PAD participants though, they probably already guessed today's prompt ahead of time.
For the fourth and final Two-for-Tuesday prompt of the 2022 April Poem-A-Day Challenge:
- 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.

Write a poem every single day of the year with Robert Lee Brewer's Poem-a-Day: 365 Poetry Writing Prompts for a Year of Poeming. After sharing more than a thousand prompts and prompting thousands of poems for more than a decade, Brewer picked 365 of his favorite poetry prompts here.
Here’s my attempt at a Love and/or Anti-Love Poem:
"thing called love"
ever since i was a little boy
i conjured up images of what
love must be & was mostly wrong
as far as i can tell but my mistakes
ended up in you with me
