It Matters Not

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. A first place Premiere Contest winner first posted in October, 2013 Not sure when it won the trophy. They were not given out till a few years later. Now entered for The Name Forsakes Me's "Piece De Resistance" Poetry Contest Swap Quatrain Form with iambic tetrameter. In this form, created by Lorraine M. Kanter, each stanza in the poem must be a quatrain (four lines) where the first line is reversed in the fourth line. Rhyming pattern: aabb, ccdd and so on

I love this one, Andrea. It is a perfect example of how some of us feel when severely depressed. I've been there. Maybe that's why I have such a fear of heights. Faved for sure.

Love the swap quatrain form, must write another some day soon. Great iambic, Andrea. A sad theme of rejection, suicide, however well-written. A 7 if not a 10.
