Today we challenge you to write a poem of over-the-top compliments. Pick a person, place, or thing you love, and praise it in the most effusive way you can. Go for broke with metaphors, similes, and more.
Have I told you lately how much I miss you
that in your absence I feel so incomplete!
you are the bristles to my handle
and what a fine toothbrush we make!
you are the iron to my ironing board
as we try to make our life wrinkle-free!
our love is like the kettle which is always on a boil
though you can be such a wet blanket sometimes
together we are like the washing machine
and the dryer working in tandem
you are as precious as my trusty oven
you better believe I am being gracious
who thinks you are the best gift
I could have asked from life!
I am sorry, my love, that I digress
you know too well you are the hum of this refrigerator
and life is empty like a tin of cookies in your absence!
