..a little less

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

Be affectionate

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
