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?

Priestess Kikyo (Dec 2012)

By Damien Knight

She who walks the heavens
Will she look on me
Smile with loving grace
At the man she sees
My Lady of light
Be my fortitude
Will you see me saved?
My Kikyo, ever shrewd
Priestess of heavens
Bless me darling
Save my wretched soul
So I might be your king

Koraki Dreams: The Girl in the Fire Place

By Damien Knight

I will preface this by stating that this was a dream I had. It is obviously a warped version of the Doctor Who episode “The Girl in the Fire Place.” During the dream it took me a bit to realise this.

Koraki stood at the top of the stairs of a Victorian ballroom. The ballroom walls were lined with mirrors where he felt certain Victorian art ought to be. He, himself, was dressed in a fine suit with a tie.

Do You Wish?

By Damien Knight

Is your will weak? Do you desire him so?
Your heart unwilling to accept?
Or maybe I am the deluded one, with sorrow.
I admit my dreams won’t let me forget.

Do you wish, deep down to say something?
I won’t reply, that I tell myself
After all I am not your king
But I know, you’re like no one else

Your ebony hair does it match her?
Are your eyes a shade of cinnamon?
rose lips a pink to leave me unsure?
Is your face hers? My heart unforgiven.

It does not matter what we wish, princess
The desire for her is why my heart persists

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

Bound So Tight

By Damien Knight

Her soul beats true in my heart
Her eyes a fire burning my soul
I am sure of her now, determined
Unfortunate destiny kept me apart
Don’t despise me this passion I feel
I tried, did not intend to bind myself
I am certain my heart she understands
For me this isn’t fantasy it’s real
Her slender form curved, a dancing blossom
I was desperate to erase from my mind
With hope I would let her free of my poetry
The pain of empty dreamings I fought them
I must control this unbridled passion
I dare not impose, I must not anymore
I have caused her grief enough
My lady of shadows found yet I can’t be forgiven

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
