Conundrum's Enigma ~ - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

It's quite a distance from my finger tips
Like loose change you fell from my pockets to the ground
And because i did not retrace my steps
I'm feeling a little unsettled - a little unsound;

You always taste like tomorrow's hope
All in spite of yesterday's loss
You are easy to remember dear
Despite what having faith has cost;

The harvest moon that illuminates your way
Is shining bright enough to nearly blind me
It keeps me awake and ready at all hours
With eyes wide open - i can truly see;

I never cared for sleep
The insomnia gives me lots of time
To completely examine possible motives
You know - the reason to your rhyme?

I do not question love as you do
On that you are always upside down
Debating all the good and bad of our relationship
If i were a sea you'd surely drown;

I do not totally believe in the conspiracy
As my sad and angry manages to get in the way
I refuse to believe that you are that greedy or evil
Come the light of a new day;

Don't let my blues and indifference shake you up
Don't flatter yourself as it's not just your game
It's this whole enchilada that's got to me
When there's not just one bad guy - then who do we blame?
