On My Mind

By Damien Knight

Don’t tell me dear Sora
You are still here
With me a silent comfort
A shadow to ease fear
Sora, my dreams are so empty
I hope yours are full
Beautiful, like a fantasy
Don’t worry about things
Do I miss you, I will
I will miss the depths
Shades of cinnemon & emerald
My soul might never rest
I keep seeking desire
I close my eyes Sora dance
Burn with love my fire
Caring Sora, Shy Sora, Fly

Idolized (2012)

By Damien Knight

I am hungry! The burning inside,
I look back on half forgotten memories .
Slowly I remember, remember the smirk
Confidence and strength, so snide.
I wanted to be just like you.
With a single lift and a glance
You made women swoon.
I wanted that too!
You had such attitude, apathy.
You did not care about a thing.
That was what made you alluring.
A trait that just isn’t me!
I love to much I swear
But I can’t deny it’s true
I still admired and looked up to you
Not that you ever did care.

Speaking Up: A Childhood Tale of Bullies and Love

By Damien Knight

When I was 10 I was best friends with a girl I will simply call Sailor Mars. Sailor Mars was this cute epileptic girl with nerdy pink glasses. When I met her she took my arm and said “You’ll be my best friend.”

I was in a new country I needed a friend. Well Mars was a regular target of school bullies. I had just came from a school where I was the target and knew how awful that was. The first time I witnessed it with her it was 2 boys known for being trouble makers. They spat on their pizza and offered it to her.

It was such a cruel thing to do. Sailor Mars would have ate it if I hadn’t spoke up. Apparently this was a common game for them and I ended up in a few scuffles over her. I was always careful about these though because I wanted to avoid the principals office.

Mars was on of my few friends that year. She was my first girlfriend. It hurts that I can’t even talk to her anymore.Anyway thats the story of the first time I stood up for someone else being bullied.
