Inspiration

By Damien Knight

Is inspiration a trifle thing

To plea the raven sing?

What verse will he give?

When he simply fights to live.

Her love a caress against skin

Reeling him back in.

He longs for her like water,

How he misses the moon’s daughter.

Aniya, see how Koraki aches?

How his poor heart breaks.

I promised I’d never leave,

It is you that lets me breathe.

Guilty

By Damien Knight

I am not in love.
This is different
than being in love.
I’m not just dreaming,
no I am scheming.
The guilt of this,
Longing and thinking.
The desire: forgiveness.

When I was certain
I’d fallen, I was high
No drop of the curtain
Hits me now, stone sober.
I feel unchanged, free.
Free and fully guilty.
I can’t handle it still
But my heart must.

Lonely

By Damien Knight

Will you even try…
I need to know the reasons why?
Here I am in pieces.
I need to release this.
Won’t you tell me true?
Did I ever mean shit to you?
I’m always second best,
When I put your love to test.
What did you want me to do?
Stay lonely just for you?

Best Friends

By Damien Knight

I know you can see me.
Hope you see me in every face.
Think your being kind by giving space.
And sure I asked for it baby…
But in the end
I just want to talk to you.
Gonna be chill like your best friend
We were that once ain’t it true?
Don’t be mad darling
That you can’t do what my lover do.
After all we both know she ain’t you.
No one can take your place.
After all I promised I would stay
And I’m down for the ride until the end.
Cuz girl you always were my best friend.

The Shadows Torment

By Damien Knight

((From a dream I had))

Slowly approaching the dark mistress
My own mind in distress
Passion outweighs infatuation
Screaming in utter frustration
Her anger I see has no bounds
Her stare louder than any sound
I have been her only dreams
Her life was with me it seems
A thousand lies on who I am
No one knows or understands
The burning fire of hell in me
I am blind can’t you see

The Shadows Torment

By Damien Knight

((From a dream I had))

Slowly approaching the dark mistress
My own mind in distress
Passion outweighs infatuation
Screaming in utter frustration
Her anger I see has no bounds
Her stare louder than any sound
I have been her only dreams
Her life was with me it seems
A thousand lies on who I am
No one knows or understands
The burning fire of hell in me
I am blind can’t you see
A soldier dead cannot be dying
A man like me is always lying
And so I continue my masquerade
Playing at this game of charades
But It infuriates her even more
And she slams shut the door
To the heart of my salvation
My own secret adoration
No I pushed way to deep
And now I get no sleep
If only I could reverse my lies
Then I as the shadow wouldn’t die
*I am the Shadow. I am a Lie*
