Ellewyn, please.

I tried so hard year after year
To forget the aching dream
How do I carry on you’re not with me
I loved and let go and my fears
You never did return, the one I couldn’t save
How I sometimes hurt so much
Wishing only to join you on the other side
For now I can only see your grave
Forgive me, I tried to move past this
Yet every year on this fateful day
Of how your Radiance was cut short
My light, Ellewyn, I beg forgiveness

In memory of Misty, April 5, 2005.

Pained Memory

By Damien Knight

I think of her more and more
I think could I do anything
Would it have changed anything
The song on the radio, I cry as it plays
“I been kissed by the rose on a grave”
I haven’t even gone, I’m not so brave
I’ve not laid a rose in her name
I don’t want to believe it isn’t the same
I never wanted to believe she’s left me
That her beautiful eyes I’ll never see
Her blonde hair never again touch
Oh why does her memory hurt so much

Crystal Dreams

by Damien Knight

Who was the girl in my dreams?
She was new.
Blonde hair, eyes light blue.
Who was she that I did see?
She didn’t resist,
I went for the kiss.
What kind of dream is this?
Was it you, my Ellewyn?
A ghost in my pale blue house?
Sat on my bed, lipstick in hand,
Eyes on me pierced, a command.
Those crystal orbs like the sky.
Won’t shake my words,
“I love your company,
Stay with me.”
Arms around you we kiss,
That is the love I miss.
I sit crying at the memory.
You closed the door,
And were lost to me.
I will love you forever,
My tears like streams.
I can’t forget our shattered dreams

A Deep Grief

By Damien Knight 

I have a large family and so dont keep in touch with everyone like I’d like. Last week my dad surprised me with a text, my youngest Cousin had just lost his son. Devestating, my Cousin Jake was one of few people who accepted me right away when I came out.  He’s a cool kid and it deeply saddens me to know he and Heather lost their baby. Anyway they need help raising money for funeral expenses. If any one wants to help here is their page. For Cayson thanks.

Wild Cat in The Grass

This Acrylic on paint-board is a cat basking in grass. I have a fondness for cats and this one was inspired by my Bengal named Snow. My great sadness that my Snow is now no longer with us. He passed Christmas eve 2016. As a sort of memento to his memory I am going to post some pictures of him below. He will be missed.

Snow’s favourite Sleeping spot

We found Snow still crying at my neighbour’s porch after the man had already moved two month prior. We knew Snow was a Bengal as his owner told us so before he moved. We assumed he took the cat with him.

Who could abandon this sweet cat?

Hurricane was coming and I couldn’t leave him outside so I squatted and called, “Here Snow!” and the big boy jumped right in my arms. This was around 2011, 2012. From then on he was our big baby. He fathered two litters of cats with our Jewel. He brought us great joy and came just after we had lost another male cat who was as sweet as he was.

So, of all the cat’s I have painted, all the cats to inspire me, sweet Snow I love and miss you.
