The Thursday Think Tank - #42 Love


Upon entering this week’s prompt you may feel a bit of dizziness and nausea. Any side affects due to the gross cheesiness of this prompt cannot be used against Poets United or Robert Lloyd in any way.

Due to the nature of this week’s prompt we will understand it if you just want to sit this one out.

Should you choose to read more please be aware you will be entering a gag zone.

This is an abuse of station in some way I know and it just may want to make some folks gag but this week’s Thursday Think Tank is all about love. It’s hard to believe but we have never actually used this as a prompt before. Oh we skirted the topic once or twice but we have never outright said write about love. Well we have now.

All you need is love? What good is love? Is there really love? Does love hurt? What is love to you? Find inspiration in love, no matter happy, dark, unreturned or just plain fake write about it and share it here.

Again I am a bit early but that’s because my whole week is out of whack due to those 4 wonderful or terrible letters. Don’t worry I promise it all ends next week and we can return back to normalcy…I hope.

Oh yeah heres a bit more for you to gag on lol our First dance song!!

If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.

There 3 simple rules:

1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.

2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.


  1. Love is always a good prompt and never goes out of style Robb..great photos...bkm

  2. Here is one I wrote for that most horrible of all holidays. Hey, good luck on the whole marriage thing, Robb. :-)

  3. Wishing you both peace, joy, good health, and always and forever, love.

    I hope you will like my verse.

  4. "Her hand in mine, automatic, natural, love in motion still"

  5. up my street. Hers's my offering.

    Best wishes Rob.

  6. P.S. Lovely song, but not all of it played at the beginning.

  7. Well here's my attempt at being romantic and expressing love.

  8. Wishing you all the best for your married life. The song is perfect, just wish I could watch that dance.


  9. Hope you both have a wonderful life together.
    Filled with love and understanding.
    I shall be back tomorrow with a bit of a spin on
    the "love" theme:)


  10. Rob...
    Wish you all the very best in your married life...
    Here is my two different views on love..

  11. I hope to write something new, but in the meantime, here's a silly limerick about love and romance. Once again, congratulations!

  12. Beautiful prompt! Never wrong....

  13. A 2000 year old poem on unrequited ... love

  14. Came up with this one between last night and this morning (don't you dare ask how).

  15. Methinks he doth protest too much!

    I'm so happy for you Robb, for your pride and joyful anticipation of the BIG DAY!!

    I wish you many years of fun and games.

  16. Oooooh, looks like everyone loves the prompt! I posted a love song already written, because it says it best, the things I love. Some of you read it last summer......sorry for the repeat. I may come back later with something new, will give it a try.

    Robb - enjoy every moment of this happy time - and may the laughter and happiness continue for the rest of your lives together. I so love the photo! All our love to you and Amber. Remember, we want photos!!!!!

    ha! the verification word is "oupsy". Not kidding!

  17. Written for my youngest daughter's wedding, I think it's appropriate for today, congrats to both of you,


  18. HI
    congrates and much happiness!
    I posted a poem about love, sortof.
    hope everyone enjoys.


  19. This was actually a difficult prompt for me this week. I did enjoy the challenge. Thanks for the inspiration! ~Kristie

  20. Congrats you two! You make a cute couple; I wish you the best of the best~

  21. I've been enjoying some great reads here.
    Today, I'm sharing another one with you all.

  22. Congrats Robb. May Tororot, the God of the Rising Sun, bless you in you. May your heart always beat dum dum dum for the apple of your eye.

    Now, good people, help me to introduce "Remember This, My Daughter".

  23. Love never gets old....I posted a piece I wrote in January....xoxo

  24. I don't know if my poem follows the prompt exactly. It's not about love, but it feels like love when I read it.

  25. a sad piece on love,
    hope that it offers some insights.
    if not, will try harder next time.

    Bless you and your wife...

  26. Poets United,
    Computer gremlins prevented me posting my poem earlier in the week!
    My poem, Old Love.........


    All Good Wishes to Robb and Amber..Young Love!!!!

  27. Congratulations to you, Robb and your love, Amber. What a wonderful time in life. I am so happy for you both.
    I have never heard "Marry Me" before. It's incredible so I'm sharing it with my husband of 40 years tonight. :)

  28. Here's one that anybody can relate to... Anybody who's single anyway.

  29. Can there be a more inspiring topic? - My heartfelt congratulations to you both!

  30. Perhaps the reason this topic hasn't been used is because it is so big and encompasses so many things :)

  31. Best wishes to you both!

    Thanks for sharing your special song...I see why you chose it. Here's to all the love your hearts can stand!

  32. I'm back again with something new. Not love, but lover, which I figure is close enough. :) Here's my Fit To Be Tied limerick and limerick-off prompt.

  33. I've submitted 3 poems!!! Different angles, different situations of love!!!

    Hope you'd enjoy it!!!
