Heart and Soul Haiku

By Damien Knight

My heart torn paper
You broke my heart with silence
My soul shattered glass

Is it You?

Damien Knight

Daily I see you, visions in my head
Are you there? Are you really mine?
I longed for those days and words said
But lets admit I left with a cold “fine!”

You had called me perfect long ago
Declared me king, I miss you still
The honeymoon over is this the real you
Yet my heart refuses logic, I felt real

I won’t lie, I tried to let go
I don’t know what to do
I must take each day as it flows
And if it’s suppose to be I’ll love you

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.

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

Wounded

By Damien Knight

How embarrassing for this white boy from kentucky!
How silly, foolish and sheepish of me.
The world is huge out there, the universe bigger.
And lady luck would not be so kind that I find her!
Chance meetings is not how one finds true love.
No destined fate guided by a god above!
I fall in love easy, it’s a tragic truth
Been this way ever since I was a youth.
My poor tear stained pillow sheets
Lament that she and I won’t meet.
My empty and aching heart comes here
To vent my frustrations and my fears!
The page is my home, and guest you can see
I am a wounded bird, flailed in agony.
Foolish Koraki, love is his to write but never grasp!
Don’t drive my pain worse is all I ask.

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.
