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.
