Pursuit (Nov 2011)

By Damien Knight

If you want me
You’ll have to chase
I am tired of pursuit
Can’t you see
How much this has hurt
So, you say you love me
But I am always the one
Doing all the hard work
Pursuing and not pursued
If you cared at all
Treat me special
Instead of me feeling used
I’m here feeling our love’s a lie
Chase me, show me, act princess
Actions is worth more than words
Don’t leave me wondering why

Is it You?

Damien Knight

Daily I see you, visions in my head
Are you there? Are you really mine?
I longed for those days and words said
But lets admit I left with a cold “fine!”

You had called me perfect long ago
Declared me king, I miss you still
The honeymoon over is this the real you
Yet my heart refuses logic, I felt real

I won’t lie, I tried to let go
I don’t know what to do
I must take each day as it flows
And if it’s suppose to be I’ll love you

Heart Sick

By Damien Knight

My heart is frayed fabric
I waited for love to stitch me
My soul is damaged, heart sick
I missed her so, it blinds me
What do I do confronted by fears
I don’t want to be alone
I desperately want her here
How my heart loves her
I know what I want to do
Is it the right thing?
I fight for love that is true
All I wanted was to be her king

Takes Time To Heal

By Damien Knight

Hold it together mate!
Don’t cry for her anymore!
This is the design of fate.
She walked out the door.
You’ll heal its okay
You’ll be stronger than before
Go out, there are beasts to slay!
Do not wallow in pity on the floor.
You have so much left to give.
You can feel like a king once more.
So go, gaurd your heart and live!
In time you’ll find one to adore.

Weak

By Damien Knight

I have never felt so lonely as today
No word, no sigh, no please let’s play
Alas it’s my fault I screwed myself
And now my love is back on the shelf
I know I should just go find someone
Or just enjoy being free and have fun
I can’t all I want is to love you
My words were honest, my heart was true
I said that for you I was made
Yet over the months our love did fade
If it ever was love at all
I wish I never did fall
I kept waiting, barely breathing
Heart beat fast when you call me king
But I’m not the kind of man you seek
My human frailty makes me too weak

Wounded

By Damien Knight

How embarrassing for this white boy from kentucky!
How silly, foolish and sheepish of me.
The world is huge out there, the universe bigger.
And lady luck would not be so kind that I find her!
Chance meetings is not how one finds true love.
No destined fate guided by a god above!
I fall in love easy, it’s a tragic truth
Been this way ever since I was a youth.
My poor tear stained pillow sheets
Lament that she and I won’t meet.
My empty and aching heart comes here
To vent my frustrations and my fears!
The page is my home, and guest you can see
I am a wounded bird, flailed in agony.
Foolish Koraki, love is his to write but never grasp!
Don’t drive my pain worse is all I ask.

For You I Cry

By Damien Knight

I don’t have the will, I’ll never love again.
I burned bright with you princess.
Is it true, must all things end?
I own it, my own bullet did this.
I killed what ever chance we had.
It almost was, I love you above all.
My glass shattered heart broke bad
As I slam the door and watch it fall.
I should have kept my walls, been secure.
To admit I am crying is weak but true.
I would never of left you, but I’m unsure.
You would not hold me now, as I would you.
Sunday I was perfect, today I’m weak.
Sunday I was your king on pedestal.
Tomorrow we won’t even speak.
My fault I was such a fucking fool
Once more no woman could love me.
I was used and left to dry
Too blind by my love I now see.
Still I love you, for you I cry!

Finished

By Damien Knight

I dry the tears from my stained eyes
Weary of the myraid of lies.
You wrote so many pretty tales
But that ship had long set sail.
Unhappy lullabyes, your siren song
Of all the ways I done you wrong.
I will not care for you anymore
You burned the bridge, slammed the door.
Don’t come crying to me Sailor Mars
When he doesn’t help you reach the stars
When he leaves you an empty shell,
I won’t be there as well.
My love is spent, friendship gone
I should have listened all along.
My fair maiden with the peridot eyes
Has not wished upon me my demise.
She has called me her love and king
I have called her my everything.
It is easy to make my choice
I love she who has the honey tea voice.
Fair well, to god with you, adeu
I want nothing more to do.with you!

Hate Everything

By Damien Knight

I wish I weren’t so clingy
That I didn’t obsess over memory
Wish I didn’t love you at all
Didn’t miss you, I want to hate
I want to hate how you lied
How you misaligned me to friends
Hate how its my fault
That I never meant for it to end.
I hate clinging and letting go
I let my feelings for you show
I was left lonely in the dirt
I don’t want us to “work.”
I want my Manda dear,
My lady with peritdot eyes
She who erases my fear
And has not yet to tell me lies
