Shining Armour

By Damien Knight

A knight in shining armour
is a man who never been to war
I’m not a gonna ride in
on a pearly white horse

I am a warrior battered
my armour beaten, flesh bruised
but here I stand with my sword
to fight alongside you

I can’t save you, my lady
I also fight wars in my head
but I can love you, my princess
let’s fight this together instead

I Love You

By Damien Knight

Every drug has a price babe.

Oh, I wonder what the cost?

But you know I’m in love babe,

Without you I’d be lost!

And I am a romantic,

They say that is true.

But this romance on display,

I write it for you.

And each night this old crow

Lays in his forlorn nest

Alone but not really

For you are my rest.

And when the light hits,

And the dawn breaks,

I find myself eager

To once again wake.

My dreams not so pretty

As the green of your eyes.

I glance at my phone

Before I even rise.

I feel so different now

My confidence a king’s attire

And you the queen of my heart

Set my being on fire

How many languages can I use

to express my devotion?

Love is a language all its own

and mine for you a vast ocean

Without the words proper

I say my lady, my heart

I love you

And wish us never to part
