Today, we challenge you to try this out yourself by writing a list poem in which all the items are made-up names. If band names don’t inspire, how about a list of titles for romantic novels? Or new television cop dramas?
I thought today’s challenge was going to be quite difficult, but I actually found it very entertaining and pretty easy. Not sure if this counts as a poem but it sure is a list. Of course, as a hopeless romantic I chose to feature titles of romantic novels. Some novels by Jane Austen, Colleen Hoover, and Renée Carlino, as well as Micalea Smeltzer and one novel by Jasinda Wilder which is in my ever growing to be read pile.
I was his Pride and Prejudice. Meanwhile, he thought he was Finding Cinderella. Never Never was this true. For it was Too Late, to long he had been Losing Hope. But I kept Falling Under Before We Were Strangers. Maybe Someday, we too could have our November 9 and our Rae of Sunshine. Hopefully, we would never reach our Point of Retreat and would be Slammed by more than just a Sweet Thing. I would Swear On This Life a million times that this was more than just Sense and Sensibility, and our true undying love would never be; Without Merit.
