UNWelcome ~Ghazal

Cubby posted a challenge to write a ghazal a couple weeks ago…I’m just getting to it πŸ™‚

It is my first attempt I hope you enjoy.


Kindly pass through, you are not welcome here

the venom you spew is not welcome here


It is sad but true, I have grown tired

your negative skew is not welcome here


While it makes me blue, I have to admit

friendship withdrew, Β you are not welcome here


No need to review, Melanie bids you

Goodbye, adieu; you are not welcome here


~Melanie Blackwell
