Ghazal ! (Nobody can Stop) 

-

Pretend if you want, nobody can stop!

But what I understand, nobody can stop!

:

You have authority to misjudge me today 

Believe! I ain’t a sycophant, nobody can stop! 

……….. …. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

…. …. ……. ……….. Pretend if you want, nobody can stop!

……….. …. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

 

 

Reform your baffled mind, not bitter anymore 

The voice of the appellant, nobody can stop!

…. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

…. …. ……. ……….. Pretend if you want, nobody can stop!

……….. …. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

 

:

None is ready to bow down before your arrogance 

Moreover I am an ascendant, nobody can stop! 

…. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

…. …. ……. ……….. Pretend if you want, nobody can stop!

……….. …. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

 

You may kill me through your sinister smile 

Though I am ever buoyant, nobody can stop!

…. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

…. …. ……. ……….. Pretend if you want, nobody can stop!

……….. …. …. ……. ……….. But what I understand, nobody can stop!

The End.

Ever buoyant? Like a dead body?

As a general rule, yes. A cadaver in the water starts to sink as soon as the air in its lungs is replaced with water. Once submerged, the body stays underwater until the bacteria in the gut and chest cavity produce enough gas—methane, hydrogen sulfide, and carbon dioxide—to float it to the surface like a balloon.

I don't understand your poem. Did you write it for someone special? What does it mean? The end makes me think of a dead body floating in some water.

It might be a New format for many of you as Ghazal is not popular in English version. you can find very depth melody on it if you try to feel it.

I wrote a sonnet once. I found it -

Sonnet 0

Is my verse that of a poor sonneteer?
Do you feel my words or do they betray?
My first quatrain may not be very clear
My iambic pentameters at bay
And this is my first Shakespearean form
The rival poet I am not for sure
My second quatrain may not be the norm
Though my octave to you longs to implore
But no words could do my dark lady just
No Shakespeare, Marlowe its futility
To draw my love theres no words that I trust
No poet enjoys that ability.
145 was tetrameter and poor (:
Some others feet are right but none love more.

It probably has mistakes but in my opinion it is better than a lot of Shakespeares sonnets. I dont care much about form. What is the point? To be clever?

Your poem kind of made me think of this poem that I wrote a while ago. It has no fancy form but I think it is good -

Beyond

Brain matter beneath my nails
Fragments of smashed skull
Ripping out entrails
Of victim to the cull

This is no vivisection
I bite into your heart
Beyond disaffection
I'll tear soul apart

I want to taste your pain
Savour it a while
Feel my terror reign
See my evil smile

I'll give you decimation
Erase you from existence
Hear my proclamation
Futile is resistance

I killed Tyler Durden
Killed him really slow
He became a burden
So Tyler had to go

I have become a God
I have gained ascension
Scorched earth where I trod
Im in a new dimension

I charged through the Ninth Gate
Satan bowed before me
Riding on my hate
I would show no mercy

I put Satan to the sword
Burnt out the flames of hell
I now control his horde
Beyond where mortals dwell.

To be honest, I did not know what Ghazal is and had to look it up on the internet.  Now I understand, somewhat, as I am not intimately familiar with the traditional principles of Ghazal to truly appreciate its form.  Impressed, nevertheless.
