By Damien Knight

Her heart was a bitter void.

Blackness seeped into the soul

Where could she go?

She had givens so much

Never enough.

She loved, sacrificed

He left anyway

If he had wanted

he still couldn’t stay

It had to be

Her joys slashed

as a car pulled

into their driveway

She shooed the kids back

Tells them to stay

Tears of glass

lost to grief

a letter at last

no relief

he’d never come home

and these little ones

she’d have to love

on her own






By Damien Knight
She was my heart

I was her fire

Oceans a part

Close in mind

Passions burn

Dancing torch

I still yearn

For her voice

Alas we seperated

Through the viel

My life dedicated

To her memory

Fade Away

By Damien Knight

Dropped tears down a crystal face.

I’m glass, a shattered flower vase.

Never allowed my beauty.

You robbed me of my petals.

You stole my shine,

All for your own benefit.

I had aspirations, dreams

You tore each one at the seams

I won’t let you haunt me

I shake away the chains

Of bitter memories

So fade away darkness

I reach out and touch
Only to grab air
I miss him so much
But he is not there
He resides not in the cave of sorrow
Nor can I find him by Crystal Tears
I guess our time was borrowed
Without him I am consumed with fear
I search lovingly behind the drapes
I fly out and scan the lake
I hold the bitterness like sour grapes
And wonder if he knows how my heart aches
