My dingy flat covered in photos of you
Taken from a distance – you never knew.
Expensive presents delivered to your door
All sent with love – you never knew.
I watched over you every night
Hidden in the shadows below – you never knew.
Then I saw you with him, so happy
You hurt me so much – you never knew.
Your deception destroyed our love
I had such plans – you never knew.
I came to tell you it’s all over
The knife moved so quickly – you never knew.
This is my attempt at Ghazal – an intriguing form of poetry I’d never heard of before. The challenge was set over at dVerse Poets Pub by John who gave us a great description of the form and how we might go about writing one.
