Challenge: Ghazals

Geoff recently introduced me to the Ghazal form: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghazal. Basically, it’s a poem composed of two-line stanzas, each of which are self-contained (in both language and topic) and all end with the same word. Read the wikipedia page for the finger points of the form, and then write one! I have one with the ending-word “dead” that I will post shortly, aka, as soon as I have finished typing it up.
