(((Arpeggio))) - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

You were once the Music of my Life-
Each chord played rapidly one after one-
An arousing Arpeggio of sensual delight-
'Neath a once blossoming Erotic Sun...
My ears were induced by your music-
As you did strike the harp chords of my being-
Rendering me tantilized in harmonious sound-
In your eyes-true desire-i thought i was seeing...
Seduced by your rhapsody of pretend reality-
And driven by lyric's you seemed to only hold-
Your music and the words once bewitched me-
'Neath your musical heat-my entirity-you once did hold...

Revised and Reposted

From: ***The Attic Of My Heart

Dedicated to: My foolish and almost sinful slip away from God
And to all members of the masquerade.
Most especially dedicated to: B.W.S., A.M.W..-aka M.J.C.,
H.H.N. et al. Hope you all had lots and lots of fun!

    The rhapsody of reality - a lovely idea, though reality is too harsh for me, I prefer a Moonlight Sonata and dreams to reality; glad you also love music so much! Beautiful poem, regards, Margaret.

    Seduced by your rhapsody of reality...
