Sorry?

by Damien Knight

Her slender hands ice on my face
Framing me, cradeling she whispers
“Damien? My Damien?” I find i’m voiceless
No, no I try to say, her eyes burn
Deep in my soul, the void
Her hair rolls as waves
In the stormy seas of dreams
“Sora?” my voice cracks finally
Where was this place
This house of endless memories
Not my own, she sighs, “I’m Sorry.”
“You know I’m trying here, really!”
My heart skips a beat in anxious agony
It’s not me, why is she here again?
Yet I want to pull her close
Place a hand over hers, stare at her face
The curve of her smile
“I am trying to let you go to him.”
And all she can say is “sorry?”

Foreseen

By Damien Knight

My muse, she threatens my heart
I know she did not intend this
I am weak to the ways of love
Worrying, longing for her happiness
When she leaves, she never will
And I, yes me, will be on her mind
Is it what we desired? I say no.
Yet, I believe my sight, she’d read my lines
I predicted once she’d come
Lured by poetry with no desire for me
She’d love another who matched my frame
Somehow, I’d help set her free
I don’t know if now is that dream
I stare dazed at my computer screen
My muse similar to my visions
If I ignore her is it ignoring the foreseen

My Heart

By Damien Knight

“Who are you?” I remember my eyes on her lips.
Aniya, use to whisper, “remove the mask
The shadows you hide in, I can’t see you like this!”

“I’d lift the veil, kiss you as my wife if I could,” my reply
My heart sure she’d call me for a  lie, tell me it’s easy.
Failing to see how bounded I am, the knots leave me tied

She pleaded in many dreams to make her my bride, my queen
“Can’t you see my agony, My fate, a horrid destiny
Take my soul, all in my heart, how lost I have been.”

“Would you die to be with me? Stand at my side and fight?
Do you believe you will withstand the agony?
Your dark prince, a war torn, shadow bound knight.”

“Live for me! Live with me, Lady of shadow, my elegant flame.”
She denies me, resists, after begging her heart filled with fear
“What will they think, You and I, our world’s aren’t the same.”

My heart is granite I tell myself. My soul frozen over.
Will death be the only way? Must I sleep and merely dream?
Aniya, Lady of Shadow, I won’t give up. Is anyone her?

Dare Not Dream

By Damien Knight

If you think I am resting, that I might sleep clear
How can the heart rest when my head is full of doubt and fear
I hope to no longer have to say sorry, simply hold on to love
I should know better, no one hears my prayers above
I do not deserve pity, affection I can’t earn
She will not find me, I never do seem to learn
She is to fair and beautiful to be real and true
Eyes that stare into the soul, lips of ruby, kisses blew
Her dark glassy obsidian hair drapes her shoulders, slender steady
Her small face with arched brow, high round cheeks, a shy grin at me
No how can I rest knowing I will see her when I sleep
And when I do I will wake once more to weep
Others have their chosen loves beside them in this world
I am destined to never have my fair and perfect girl
