mythical black dog i hear your howling from the darkness gate keeper of the underworld perpetual torment cries the name of a lost love as innocent blood drips from my heart in payment of pride i beg let loves pure soul pass to taste the mornings sun kisses upon sweet fresh earth come to heel demon beast of hades brood no malice upon love's freedom for hell can spare one soul tonight

The poem is very nice, but it is not qasida. As a rule, qasida is longer than ghazal(15-60 couplets), but it follows the same system of rhymes (AA-BA-CA-DA...). Check the definition and examples.

Thank you Pashang The poem was written free of any predetermined constraints or format. Any similarities to a format are purely co-incidental. I was reaching for a mood and although not entirely successful I was pleased enough with the result to post here for feedback.
