Please don't Follow

I step along a path to nowhere.
Why am I heading this direction?
will anyone else follow me there?

It's my choice I made the selection.
Still I know I am becoming lost.
Why am I heading this direction?

With every choice life exacts a cost.
Somehow in my mind it all makes sense.
Still I know I am becoming lost.

Walking along the fog becomes dense.
I am not swayed I keep going on.
Somehow in my mind it all makes sense.

Before I know it my days are gone.
I live in my world without the sun.
I am not swayed I keep going on.

This way I chose is a lonely one.
I step along a path to nowhere.
I live in my World without sun
Will anyone else follow me there?

    This is seriously my very favorite of all of your terzanelles! The flow is magnificent! It reads so flawlessly and gracefully. I am so impressed! I wanna try this form again, you inspire me!

    Hi Anne I hope you still like it, I had forgotten a stanza so it has changed a bit.

    I really like how you do your terzanelles with such short succinct lines!! I am always using iambic pentameter, but I don't think it is necessary. Just how they come out in me. This is really a NEAT poem and I think you handle this form masterfully!

    Thanks Andrea, perhaps I don't use iambic pentameter because I don't know what it is *lol* please educate me.
