Empty Void

By Damien Knight

I feel an emptiness none can fill
Would you try?
Fill this empty void inside?
Will you embrace the shadows?
Are you scared of the dark?
I don’t ask for much love
Just your human heart

Unsteady (2011)

By Damien Knight

Bleeding wrists can’t match a bleeding Heart
The darkness inside tears me apart
I yearn to wake from this nightmare
Life plagues me it seems unfair
Living in a twisted mire of lies
Is the the man I am inside
One that cannot be saved
Should I dig my own grave
I won’t let myself drown
I won’t be kept down
My heart will heal my soul will thrive
I am grateful to just be alive

Only Me (2012)

By Damien Knight

Shutting out the world today,
closing up my heart, what can I say
closing out sound and all around me.
I didn’t understand but now I believe
In the beginning and at the end
We have only ourselves as a friend
From now on I must remind myself
I can only rely on myself.
Others will not be at my side
No one comes with me when I die

Death’s Caress

By Damien Knight

If I said good bye to sweet life
The things I’d miss would be
The deepest of my regrets.
A childs laugh worth more than gold
Lovers kiss should be forever
In the mind to hold.
Keep Your wealth, I need it not
Keep your promise to help me rot
I abandoned your dark caress
For this life ahead of me.
Yes I may seem blind
At least I’m me,
At least I’m me!

Monday Motivation: Character

By Damien Knight

 

When we think of motivation, we talk a lot about light, moving into the light, seeking light, pursuing it. Light is always the goal. We then view struggle as our enemy and emotions as weapons against us. Pain, suffering, depression, we become swallowed in our cycle of pity and anguish and only light can save us. This, this then leads us to struggling to find light, light of course being happiness, prosperity and normalcy. We fight darkness, but is it our enemy?

I was evicted back in March 2017; the land-lord had tried several times to evict me for various claims and I finally stopped fighting her. I won’t claim I embraced despair. No one does but at this same time I had watched The Secret and I desperately wanted to believe in the power of attraction. I had put out to the universe that I wanted a house; I knew I had a lease I couldn’t break and, yet the universe found a way for me to break my lease.

So far, no darkness, but then I was unable to find a place, and I ended up essentially squatting in a house that had a bad roof and no floors in the kitchen. I loved the house itself and part of me wanted to buy it, but it wasn’t feasible. After just a month a familiar friend appeared. Depression, loneliness, despair. I have experienced many dark times in my past but this recent one I feel is where I mastered not fighting the darkness of agony.

I have suffered many “Character Building” events. Truly to pursue the light one must stop fighting darkness and use it to build your character. Side note if you suffer clinical illness do not take my words to mean you should stop medicines. Please remember that medicine is a tool to keep us going just as much as any other means of motivation and for some it is what keeps us alive. STAY MOTIVATED!

 

 

Lost Dream

By Damien Knight

Deep down I wallow in despair
The world passes without care
As I sacrifice dream for dream
My life isn’t what it seems

I forget to stop and look around
Lost in a life with no sound
Not even a moment of belief
Not a second of relief

Alas I lost out in all my dreams
For the sake of my lovers fantasies
Now I wait so empty and alone
Never achieving a dream of my own
