***keys Of Memory~6191*** - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

Memory
Plays the keys
Of my heart
Just like a Baby Grand

The melody-the tune
All off key
In an orchestra
Of fine tuned instruments

I follow the music
With my minds eye
To where-ever it leads me
And into the depths of Ballads
Of 'HeartBreak'

I, at last find myself
Locked-tethered-chained
To memories, bitter and sweet
Despairing and off key with no
Harmony, in the least


A re-write is in order, STAT
A re-play-a fine tuning, immediately
A re-awakening, a re-newing-NOW:
Of Hope
Of Hope That Sings
You know, that feeling, with wings
