To Love Her

Damien Knight

A chain wrapped tight
Iron bound around my heart.
Why is love a fight?
Can we just restart?
I know I cannot
I feel the distance.
I haven’t forgot
I am no longer persistant
I want to but I moved on.
She broke me over & over
Drowned this crows song.
When I wanted to love her.

Lady of Sky

By Damien Knight

Like vapour on the wind
You run through my fingers.
What I did I can’t defend.
Will my guilt forever linger?
I write line after line
Of love lorn sorrow eternal.
Sora, the sky isn’t mine!
This battle of fire is internal.
Grasping at the dirt of earth
I am in desperate plea.
Something, perhaps loves rebirth
I need you to break me free!
The walls around my paper heart
Might seem insurmountable.
Beloved, when we’re apart
I feel insecure, border unstable.
Is it weakness to confess this pain?
Would you no longer call me king?
Without your love I feel insane
Your withdrawl from dreams has such sting

Takes Time To Heal

By Damien Knight

Hold it together mate!
Don’t cry for her anymore!
This is the design of fate.
She walked out the door.
You’ll heal its okay
You’ll be stronger than before
Go out, there are beasts to slay!
Do not wallow in pity on the floor.
You have so much left to give.
You can feel like a king once more.
So go, gaurd your heart and live!
In time you’ll find one to adore.

I See You

By Damien Knight

I see you in my dreams
An artificial reality
I am alone it seems
You’re not here with me
Those emerald orbs stare
Into my black cold soul
Flip dark locks without care
And take the heart you stole
Aniya, I pray to find you
The perfect love, my wife
Right now I feel through
Easily end my life
Cut away with the sword
To be in dreams with you
I need love, I gave my word
No woman has been true
Aniya, lady of shadows
I pray someday I see you!

Heartbroken Dreams

By Damien Knight

I fade away into my sheets
My fragile heart clenched to chest
I dispair, Aniya, we’ll never meet
Tonight the raven must rest

I will lay against tear stained pillows
Her name a ghost upon my lips
Never got the dream of hello
Nor did I feel her finger tips

Mother says be patient my boy
And perhaps I should, but Aniya I ache!
And I despise feeling like a toy
It’s my fault I feel such heartbreak

This crow sleeps with prayer on his tongue
That she still wants him around
But I’m to blame I said I was done
But she’s the best love I’ve ever found!

Weak

By Damien Knight

I have never felt so lonely as today
No word, no sigh, no please let’s play
Alas it’s my fault I screwed myself
And now my love is back on the shelf
I know I should just go find someone
Or just enjoy being free and have fun
I can’t all I want is to love you
My words were honest, my heart was true
I said that for you I was made
Yet over the months our love did fade
If it ever was love at all
I wish I never did fall
I kept waiting, barely breathing
Heart beat fast when you call me king
But I’m not the kind of man you seek
My human frailty makes me too weak

For You I Cry

By Damien Knight

I don’t have the will, I’ll never love again.
I burned bright with you princess.
Is it true, must all things end?
I own it, my own bullet did this.
I killed what ever chance we had.
It almost was, I love you above all.
My glass shattered heart broke bad
As I slam the door and watch it fall.
I should have kept my walls, been secure.
To admit I am crying is weak but true.
I would never of left you, but I’m unsure.
You would not hold me now, as I would you.
Sunday I was perfect, today I’m weak.
Sunday I was your king on pedestal.
Tomorrow we won’t even speak.
My fault I was such a fucking fool
Once more no woman could love me.
I was used and left to dry
Too blind by my love I now see.
Still I love you, for you I cry!

Unrequited Love

By Damien Knight

Blood on the page, tears that I cry.
I can’t do a damn thing right!
I love you, my choice, would that I die,
Because living alone is to much to bare.

I cut away old baggage, with new scars.
You’re bitter, it burns, I did it for you!
So what does it matter, got me far,
Guess once more I loved untrue.

Wasted years of my life once before!
At least this was only months,
But it’s you princess I adore.
If only you would believe me.

Im tired of constant pleading case,
Telling you I love and desire you.
We burned fast, it’s all a waste
And you never loved me back.
