You could base your poem off of a breakup you have gone through, or one you have observed a friend or family member go through. If you’ve broken up with someone, how did you handle it? Do you have any regrets about how you handled it? Same thing for if you’ve been broken up with. If you’ve never been through a breakup, what do you think would be the worst possible breakup to go through? The best? Use these questions and imaginative exercises to brainstorm for your poem.
