A poetic form consisting of couplets which share a rhyme and a refrain. The couplets have lines of 10 syllables (Including the refrain). The refrain can be a word or a phrase. There is internal rhyming in line 1 and 2, and line 2 of each couplet with the refrain. Each couplet should be able to stand alone. There is no limit to the number of couplets in a Ghazal.

Oh death, you set my mind askew so much, for I don’t know why I fear you, so much. Life seems awful short when existence ends, I wish our years here weren't so few, so much. I used to pretend paradise would come, but I hoped and prayed it was true; so much. Though I don't believe in life after death, I'd like to meet the God I knew, so much. Oh death, although you're inevitable, I hate this whole hullabaloo, so much. (Ghazal) 04,23,2019 Writing Challenge 2- April 2019- Its All About 10 - Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Dear Heart

Oh, sweet Emile, I know you don’t believe, but I say then why do we yearn so much for screams within our very soul. My dad once asked why the types of spiritual things that me and my sisters experience don’t happen to him. I had to ponder. You must have faith the size (so small) of a mustard seed then the Holy Spirit will open your eyes. Ask Jesus to let you see. <3 Kim
