Hostage

By Damien Knight

How can I appease your mental suffering?
Do I feign a role, no I am no prince! I am king.
Yet, it is a constant lie, a game we play.
Back and forth, forth and back, what do I say?
I won’t run, I refuse to give in to fear.
Instead I stand strong, will you my dear?
You ask repeated my feelings, my affections
In return I keep up the redirections.
If I dared to say I loved you
Oh forgive me darling, yes it’s true.
Love we said is selfless, selflessly I care.
Every act of concern I’m there,
In your thoughts and so you return to me.
Looking for him in every written piece
I keep encouraging you to leave,
I do all I can to set you free.
I won’t give up on my visions, the dreams I seek
I’ll throw my threads for the one I speak.
My heart is held hostage to her that I see
And when I find her, my heart will be free!

Meant (Jan 4 2011)

By Damien Knight

“How can the heart
Confuse the head so?”
She asked me in a dream.
I held her ever close.
A whisper in her ear:
“You listen to your head
Not enough to your heart.
Your heart doesn’t lie
You will always find
We are meant to be.”
How I wish she were mine.

Vanish

By Damien Knight

I can feel it welling up
The pain, the thoughts, the sorrow
My depression I keep fighting
The anger at tomorrows
Tears I battle, bat them back
Empty anger, lonely rage
I pull her close, cold
My heart locked in iron cage
Her icy lips I kiss
She’s my comfort now
A figment, a doll, a dream
No one else needed somehow
I can’t be party to hope anymore
It’s all coincidence, lies
I’ll sleep and forget
That I was ever weak enough to cry
False prophecy, years of dreams
Threads I threw all like sand
I hate them all wish I never seen
I wish never to dream again

Have Happiness

By Damien Knight

A falling star, how do visions fade
Dreams are merely so, yet here I stay
Waiting Anika Sora, for the day you know
That in your dreams it’s my glow

Just because you set your heart
Determined not to let the past depart
But in past is where I knew your grace
The painted lips, tear stained face

Cry no more my lamp lit beloved
See my hands here ungloved?
I spoke true my visions light
And my Anika, do you see my plight?

Once long ago in another life
We were wed, you were my wife
You can tie yourself how ever you wish
It changes nothing, have happiness

Guarantee (2012)

By Damien Knight

Love me dear like tomorrow isn’t coming
Cuz this life has no guarantee
I’ll love you like a man who’s dying
You’re what sets me free
Darling, one day I won’t wake up
We exist on borrowed time babe
So drink deep of life cup
The healthy and the sick will die
So let’s escape and live our dreams
Let’s live, Aniya, without regret
I can’t wait until tomorrow
It may never come, hold me don’t forget

Dance With Me (Jan 2011)

By Damien Knight

Life is complicated, a dance I forget
The steps I misstep every time
All I ask is if you love Me
Princess, accept me without regret
Take my hand fair lady
Dance with me this dance of mine
Don’t ignore the smile I give
Acknowledge me for my love, my lady
