Cold Dream

By Damien Knight

The endless void eating away
Vast, empty, broken pieces of joy
Glass tears from a glass heart
My love, a used up, washed out toy

I wait, hope, dream, none match
I can’t lead those who will not follow
I refuse to force my love
Let the ropes slide, gently they go

Loose the knotted strings of heart
I loved so much, no, I never knew
What love really is, what I feel
Heartless and cold, that is me its true

Idiot (Dec 2011)

By Damien Knight

Life is worth living with love
And those you love with you
Yet my heart has had enough
It’s battered and bruised
I love you yet we fight
And it’s a normal thing to do
I wish to make things right
I saw my heart and feelings true
And of course I’m the idiot
Because I started all this
Venting because I don’t forget
All I wanted was your kiss
I shouldn’t have started this mess
Men aren’t to have emotions
Cold, bitter and heartless
We must not show our devotions
Needs unimportant, I don’t matter
So I won’t speak of them again
Lesson well learned with her
I see it impending our end

Dare Not Dream

By Damien Knight

If you think I am resting, that I might sleep clear
How can the heart rest when my head is full of doubt and fear
I hope to no longer have to say sorry, simply hold on to love
I should know better, no one hears my prayers above
I do not deserve pity, affection I can’t earn
She will not find me, I never do seem to learn
She is to fair and beautiful to be real and true
Eyes that stare into the soul, lips of ruby, kisses blew
Her dark glassy obsidian hair drapes her shoulders, slender steady
Her small face with arched brow, high round cheeks, a shy grin at me
No how can I rest knowing I will see her when I sleep
And when I do I will wake once more to weep
Others have their chosen loves beside them in this world
I am destined to never have my fair and perfect girl

A Wicked Man (Oct 2013)

By Damien Knight

Never happy, never enough!
All I did was feed you love!
Am I so evil, so wicked still?
Does my face make you Ill?
I should do as you desire,
Since you reject my loves fire.
After all I’m such a man
So cruel and can’t understand
How you suffer so with this.
Here you deny me even a kiss!
Yet I have never truly left
Despite you leaving me bereft .
I pay your bills, buy your groceries
Yet you still are upset with me!
How do you think I feel?
My love treated like it isn’t real,
Hiding me away like we aren’t a thing.
Acting like I’m a casual fling
Cut me out from your family.
Yet you claim to want to marry me?
I don’t know what happened or why
But it feels like “we” are a lie.
It’s a harsh slap in the face!
You expect me to stay in this place?
Made to feel like shit, I do everything!
You just kept treating me like nothing.
It just never was enough
No matter how much I gave my love.
