(((Your Shallow Heart)))

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

There is so much that you do not know-
So much that has been left unsaid...
The temporary misery that you showed...
Was all contrived in your scheming head;

Spoken out of fear not of sorrow-
Your heart 'tis shallow in its contents...!
While you seem to be breathing sighs of relief...
Others feelings are growing much more intense;

Knowing all about you and another few...
Came as a shock and horrible surprise...
Having your name pointed out-
As a player of lies and disguise;

Tell you-it just broke my heart-
And its now nearly cracked into-
You are just another game player-
Another cook in the greed inspired stew;

And so it is with all Merry-Go-Rounds...!
With a Brass Ring or even none...
I have no need to be taught in Braille...! ! !
For your most corrupt ring 'tis done! ! ! ;

We have all the names needed...!
To pursue this further on along...! ! !
And it is your shallow heart...
That is so very very wrong! ;

You are quite the actor...! ! !
Playing your sad-sad song...!
When in the light of reality...
You continue with the others to practice 'WRONG'! ! ! ;

So it is: 'do unto others
As you would have them do unto you'
Never mind your greedy motives...! ! !
I would say that you are clearly through! ;

Nothing more to say-no nothing...!
Nothing more for you to do...
As we are all completely informed...! ! !
Trust that we know all about you! ! !

(((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;
