~ Death Of Innocence~

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

It seems like Light Years ago
That sweet innocence
Like a flower in the bud
Growing in new existance

Fresh and un-flawed
Beauty and angelic substance
In the Garden unmarred
Basking in the sun with no resistance

Where oh where did i go?
It all happened so fast
One day i was pure growing tall
The next-plucked way to fast

Put in a vase amongst other flowers
Of equal or very close age
Devoured by eyes of the lusty Gardners
My innocence turned into rage

A day passed-perhaps two
Time was really irrevelant to me
Every day was the same for us all
Fresh water-and slow death agony

I felt it come upon me
Like the goodness was draining me dry
Loosing all of my substance
Bending over i knew i would die

Ragged and wilted i fought
As the others alongside of me
But resistance proved to be no assistance
The day the innocence in me was set free

And into the trash we all landed
Despairing our very last breath
My petals no longer like velvet
But a dried mixture of long fought floral death!

Amazing how you carry the comparison throughout all the phases even after the flower is picked and until it is thrown into the trash. Wonderful insights.
Amazing! I could picture exactly what you meant. Love it! ! !
Great work...I like the analogy as a flower...very clever! Top marks! -Michael

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed


It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;


An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
