Troubled Water (Dec 2011)

By Damien Knight

The foreboding in my heart
Pierces the soul like dark water
The warnings, bad omens make me falter
If I am to suffer from the start
This deep impending sorrow
Leads a prayerless man to pray
So take my hands, now heads and stay
That we might seek a better tomorrow
Yes I know she is at my side
The lady of shadows I her king
She prays and makes my heart sing
Even in troubled water her light my guide

Window into The Samurai Warrior

Who were the Samurai? The Samurai were the elite warrior group of Japan. The time of the samurai was the Edo or feudal Japan period, from 1603 to 1867 in Japan. Back then Tokyo was Edo.

Perfection

Damien Knight

You are perfection,
The carving of my dreams.
Like wine you
have become better
each day that passes.
A sweet flavour
my lips long to taste.
I swore I lost my muse
Here it lies dormant
this is where it was.
My heart stolen.
Ever seeking the shadows
for verse and here
you are my princess.
It flows like life giving water

Transform (2011)

By Damien Knight

I remind myself what I feel
The ever turning wheel
Tells me how cruel life is
This body lies, it is remiss
I’ve painted myself a mask
To avoid the important task
Of acknowledging my fate
I can’t be me it’s too late
Still I must or I’d rather die
This mask I wear a broken lie
My dream is to transform
Become the man I always known

Love’s Flowering Light (2012)

By Damien Knight

My heart is lost in the shadow place
Yet the flower of love is versatile
It can bloom in the darkest shades
Inspired by the lady’s grace
I wait here for her to find me
Passionate I burn my despairs
For I know the flowers light
Is hope in a world of broken dreams
