It Matters Not

It hovers here, a moon opaque, obscuring mountain trails I take. No other living things appear. A moon opaque. . . It hovers here. I follow on along a ledge; below a swirling river’s edge. In front of me, the canyon’s yawn. Along a ledge, I follow on. I see no hue when fog congeals. Oh, doom of one who no more feels! The moon has fled, as so have you. When fog congeals, I see no hue. Now all is dim; it matters not. My dear one’s heart I have not got. No use in living without him. It matters not. Now all is dim. At peace I’ll be if I should fall to murky water from this wall. Oh, yawning canyon, swallow me. If I should fall, at peace I’ll be. 'for the Gothic or Romantic (old/new) Contest of Giorgio Veneto and now for the contest of PD

    Well done as always. Very different approaches to the same title but I'm not sure it matters. Cheers Dave

    Hi Andrea. I like your poetry. I don't comment that often but this poem is absolutely genius and I had to say something. The way each stanza starts and ends with the same phrase is wonderfully done. You must have had a wide range of thoughts going through your head to make it work. Well done. I will have to read more of your work. It was a priveledge reading this. I saw it on the poemzoo website and loved it. Thanks Much!
