Unreachable (2015)

By Damien Knight

I cry tears of bitter blood
My love discarded, mud
A new year, new shattered dreams
My heart ripped at the seams
Drop down this crystal face
I’m glass, a shattered flower vase
Never allowed beauty robbed my petals
Trap my heart in walls of metal
You stole my shine for your benefit
I hope hurting me was worth it
You ain’t got me to fear
Because now I won’t be here

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

Losing Interest (Oct 30, 2011)

By Damien Knight

I’m going to get you
I have said over
Not anymore true
What I once desired
Has lost all appeal
What I thought was love
It isn’t real
When hunger is denied
As long as mine
Have you lied
Is this how it really is
The longing now fades
And that’s how it goes
I no longer wish to persuade
I’d rather walk away

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.
