Sometimes in relationships

Sometimes in relationships our love defeats our lust, but sometimes not;
Sometimes in relationships our peace is kept by trust, but sometimes not.

Sometimes in relationships we, each to each, are hurt and held and healed;
Sometimes in relationships we share our heart and mind, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are lost lovers, our lives blaze with brighter bursts of passion;
Sometimes we are best friends, we balance with compassion, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are up-in-arms night and day, our battles are fought and won;
Sometimes we are at-loose-ends and struggle to be one, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are with others, together we entertain family;
Sometimes we are you and me; two is good company, but sometimes not.

Hi Micheal your poem is very nice, but I have to make a couple of comments regarding Ghazal. on your 4th line or 4th Mesra, the word "mind", on the 6th line (mesra) the word compassion, and on the 8th the word "one" and on the 10th the word "company", must rhyme with the 1st and 2nd mesra on your poem " lust and trust". You may use words like just, must, rust ... etc. Refrain in Ghazal is not mandatory. You can always email me, gladly I discuss further. Sincerely Pashang

You're very talented, ghazal has its own unique rules. I have done a couple of ghazal with and without refrain, you're welcome to check them out.... Pashang

Hi Pashang, thank you for your remarks, I will think more about them. It's been a long time since I checked this poem and the form itself, which I thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with. This was my first crude attempt. I may take up your offer to discuss. Cheers!

Wow, Michael. This has to be one of the most well captivating ghazals I've read. It isn't an easy form, but you did with ease and skill. Surprised to see so few comments on this gem... going straight to my faves!
