Un-Requited - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

Nothing but a faraway
Gaze
Breaking through my morning
Haze
It's got to be simply just a phase
Silence and nothingness

My head i must
Raise
As my heart and soul are
Ablaze
This is where my love
Lays
Empty and not returned

Many many passing days
Overwhelming lonliness
Stays
Constantly it
Betrays
My tears and sorrows

In the background the music
Plays
While i am in a numbed out
Daze
I have all of the means but not the
Ways
Lost and totally beaten

Nothing but a faraway
Gaze
Still breaking through my morning
Haze
Now i know it really is an imagined
Phase
Silence and nothingness returns
Forever
