The Heartache – A Poem (Quatern)

I’m late with this one but here goes:  PapiZ had a Quatern prompt the other day at: http://theliterarysyndicate.com/2013/10/18/papi-prompts-7/  so I’m taking a shot at it.  I’ve never attempted this form before.  Hmmmm…  I’m supposed to ping this back to Papi’s site but haven’t a clue how to do that 😦

The Heartache 

It didn’t matter
then.
When
love was based upon a dream
and all those once upon a times
it didn’t matter
when the sun
slipped away
behind a passing cloud
– play continued, in the dark, because
it didn’t matter
then
that dreams ended.
We thought we’d share a million slumbers.
Nothing had an end back then and so
it didn’t matter.
