Broken Man

By Damien Knight

Inside I claw at the walls
of the cage I built by hand
My skin crawls the images
Of this old broken man

All I ever wanted was love
to give my heart away
all I wanted was to be there
I wanted her to stay

I ache to let her near me
and try so hard to get close
thought this was a soul mate
not another almost

Swallowing my pride
I have to let it go
cuz time, space, and distance
has no room for love to grow

This ice cold heart
is locked back in its vault
If any is to blame
this is all my fault

Shining Armour

By Damien Knight

A knight in shining armour
is a man who never been to war
I’m not a gonna ride in
on a pearly white horse

I am a warrior battered
my armour beaten, flesh bruised
but here I stand with my sword
to fight alongside you

I can’t save you, my lady
I also fight wars in my head
but I can love you, my princess
let’s fight this together instead

Gone

 By “Ayana Kanosis”

I reach out and touch
Only to grab air
I miss him so much
But he is not there
He resides not in the cave of sorrow
Nor can I find him by Crystal Tears
I guess our time was borrowed
Without him I am consumed with fear
I search lovingly behind the drapes
I fly out and scan the lake
I hold the bitterness like sour grapes
And wonder if he knows how my heart aches

My Offering     


By “Ayana Kanosis” 

Take my bloody heart

Tear my body apart

I lived for you

I will die in you

This is my wretched life

And I am not the wife

I expected to be

I wonder if you see

My deepest desires

Feel the burning fires

That is my bleeding arm

Watch the cut no harm

This is my devotion

My blood in motion

You are my sun and moon

My shadow in the noon

And here I am at your altar

To give you my…

My Offering     


By “Ayana Kanosis” 

 

Take my bloody heart

Tear my body apart

I lived for you

I will die in you

This is my wretched life

And I am not the wife

I expected to be

I wonder if you see

My deepest desires

Feel the burning fires

That is my bleeding arm

Watch the cut no harm

This is my devotion

My blood in motion

You are my sun and moon

My shadow in the noon

And here I am at your altar

To give you my offer

My ultimate sacrifice

You are my ultimate vice

I made you into my lord

And I worshiped you with my word

I hold this bleeding heart

Taking it you tear it apart

You hated me so much

Yet you longed for my touch

Now have me forever

For the dead can’t move, ever

And that I give to you

My one love so untrue
