Would it matter if I told you,
That my love has finally died?
That at last I have succeeeded-
After many times I’ve tried.

In putting down the feelings
I’ve so long displayed toward you-
Would it matter if I told you-
Even if it isn’t true?

Would it stir your heart to anger
If I found me someone knew,,,
And said and did the things for her-
I used to do for you?

Like take her out to dinner-
Even though I’ve very tired...
And try my best to give her,
All the things that she desired?

Would it matter if I called you,
Just to talk for one last time..
And read the last few love songs-
That I wrote to you in rhyme?

And to say, “Farewell, my darling
I just called to say goodbye”...
I just wondered, Would it matter-
Even if it’s all a lie?.

Live large, people!

This is quite despairing, yet very well formed. It's left me pondering...

You may wear your holster on your hip ... but you wear your heart on your sleeve.
I love this!
And, yes ... it would matter.
For I would look into your eyes,
and see straight to your heart.

Hmmmn, I would think a lie would matter where that's concerned. Excellent writing!

I agree with Andrew...the ones I have truely loved in my life I still love. Even the ones I have had to let go of. I think it does matter, as long as it is the truth.
