Take the phrase “(blank) Thread;” replace the blank with a word or phrase; make the new phrase the title of your poem; and then, write your poem.
He is hanging by a thread,
she wants to call it quits.
See him dangle in the air.
We hope they don’t grab mitts.
Compromise is needed, no one can
monopolize a relationship. They must
harmonize, and respect each other.
Personalize too much, and the thread
of trust will rust.
