Hello everyone… how are you all doing today??
Today’s poem was originally supposed to be a Ghazal (pronounced Guzzle); but then I started writing and I lost the whole poetic scheme, so I just kept on writing till I felt I had written something worthy of blogging lol.
My friend reckons I could still get away with mine being a Ghazal though. I’ll let you guys be the judge of that.
You can read a few of my favourite Ghazals here and here, and then you can read mine below
Dent not a woman’s heart
For she can love you a little less
Play her not like a game of chess
And keep her valuable like art
Handle her emotions delicately
Mere words can penetrate
Express your words eloquently
Engage with her soul
It’s where her affection resides
In there her love for you abides
Sometimes you need not even cajole
So dent not her heart
For her love can be a little less
Let your love for her be in excess
And her love for you will be off the chart
