Needful Awakening

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

Long and hard
The bantering
Shook my eardrums
Drunken revelery
Had clamoured
Endlessly
A Celebration
Of Bacchus
Could cause
No worse
Debauchery
Lewd and
Lasvascious
Spouting out
Carnal inferences
Bent a little too
Far to the left
Leaning on
The near side
Of perversion
And making kinky
Look soft
I pulled myself up
Adrenalin fueled
Pushed through
The celebrant
Crowd
The din echoing
Ever louder
Heartbeating
Rapidly
Looking for a path
Urgently
A door
A way in or out
A needful awakening
Crawling and snaking
Myself through this
And all of this
Noisome mess
A light seemed to
Shimmer
In the dim
My eyes followed
It out
With heated fervor
And determination
My goal
To find a peaceful
End
To this nightmarish
Dream
That had enveloped
Inside my Soul

(((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

(((Advent)))

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! ;

(((Beloved)))

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;
