Time To Wake

By Damien Knight 

I would search the heavens, the moon, the stars, the universe
I would search the whole of earth, from Seattle, Seoul, Edinburgh, Hanoi
Every heartache, every face, ever dream I have, every written verse
I believe in fate, all things have a reason, alas though once more
I ought give up and embrace the truths laid out in front of me
Anika Sora, she lives in my fantasy, my deepest dreams 
I am happy loving my angel, eyes like the bluest sky, soul like the sea
Ignore the visions of the past they brought agony, despair
Stop searching the heavens, the moon, the stars the endless skies
Stop hunting the earth from city, town and streets
No more verses calling out to a desperate dream of lies
Wake up Koraki, Damien, the night is end, embrace reality

Sora’s Art

By Damien Knight

Her sketch pad in hand She draws
Her eyes squinted with concentration
Her obsedian hair obscures her view
I watch the pen on the paper in aw

A sporty white dress painted her
Every curve in view of my eyes
Her giggle like a bell rings out
Cat like eyes back at me so sure

“It’s you.” she whispers holding the page
Filled with drawings of my family
She standing with us in every scene
With dialogue like a play for stage

“A story board?” I muse a sigh
She packs the book into her gym bag
Glance at the trees in the park around us
It all fades, a dream another lie

Dragon Queen

By Damien Knight

Ever the sweetest of visions
I lay my head down for the night
Are you there Luna dancing in moonlight?
And in the day, sun bathes your raven hair
The call of the conchshells echo the sea
My dreams refuse to make you reality
Will you dance like a dragon across the sky
Tragic I can’t join you there
When I wake once more alone
I’ll pray lady of shadows my sins atone
For now I dream of her in flight
And with that I say good night

Lady of Sky

By Damien Knight

Like vapour on the wind
You run through my fingers.
What I did I can’t defend.
Will my guilt forever linger?
I write line after line
Of love lorn sorrow eternal.
Sora, the sky isn’t mine!
This battle of fire is internal.
Grasping at the dirt of earth
I am in desperate plea.
Something, perhaps loves rebirth
I need you to break me free!
The walls around my paper heart
Might seem insurmountable.
Beloved, when we’re apart
I feel insecure, border unstable.
Is it weakness to confess this pain?
Would you no longer call me king?
Without your love I feel insane
Your withdrawl from dreams has such sting

To Dream Love

By Damien Knight

The rain reminds me of my sorrow
How lonesome am I sweet lady
I ache, the time we borrow
Is the dreams of her and me

I hold my breath how do I live
Without her voice in my ear?
Smooth as silk, I beg forgive
I just want to see her, my dear.

She haunts me, like a spectre
Her eyes pierce my visions
I want to be there with her
Alas I must wake once again
