for her

my heart falls away
like the leaves
where is my lady
her voice abandons me
i loved her eternal
alas cursed i’m immortal
perhaps she is dying
alone left without me
i weep for her

Forever Sworn to Sora

Fair Sora, once more I dreamt of you
Leaned in my arms, watery eyes
I should not speak to her, my love,
For I keep hearing your sweet song
I try so hard to be a guiding light
With words of patience and verse
In the end it only makes matters worse
I love every ebony strand of hair
The curve of lips in smile curled
I describe your loveliness
With such care and diligence
When I do she slides from lucid
To a world not real, a dream I can’t feel
Every time, though I never claim false
I find myself in humble apology
Sora, I sigh, I am sorry, so sorry
I never proclaimed to love or desire
After all only MY SORA has my fire
But, whispering doubt seeps like toxins
What if? Wall the heart, Damien Knight,
Guard the soul from her, from dreams
I try every time, but my heart won’t listen
I want to be beside the lady of shadows
Ever persistent I won’t let this love go
Yes, dear Sora, last night I held tight
My heart desires only your true light
When you wake from your dreams
I know you cannot remember me
No, not the way, I see you in glow
I will wait, eternal, sworn forever, for you

You are perfection,
The carving of my dreams.
Like wine you
have become better
each day that passes.
A sweet flavour
my lips long to taste.
I swore I lost my muse
Here it lies dormant
this is where it was.
My heart stolen.
Ever seeking the shadows
for verse and here
you are my princess.
It flows like life giving water

I Want Your Darkness (2012)

By Damien Knight

I want a taste of darkness
Darkness of you on my lips
Lips luscious I desire
I desire to hide in depths
Depths of your mysterious ways
Ways dark, shadowy, and black
Black as the night I hide shielded
Shielded temporarily from light
Light that I might appreciate
Appreciate when I reemerge
Reemerge to see your sun
Your delightful sun once more
