Shadow Self

By Damien Knight

Blood dark as night
Black and potent
Mixed with the pain
That is your fight
Wondering when you see
That my blood is black
Dark like yours shadow
Ropes bind no slack
Keeping me my shadow
Chained to nightmares
Things I fear haunting me
I wake scared
I sleep on edge
Your name the last thought
Your name screaming
Shadows of darkness reeling
Trying to escape
Your name the first I wake
Take it how you see
But leave me my heart to break
This is where I am failed
Waking cuts on me
Sleeping bruised
Begging silently
Can’t be me
Words harsher than a Knife
I am slaughtered
By this life
Without you, death consumes me
Without you, shaded self,
I am a shadow’s shadow
Of a dream unreal

The Shadow’s Knight

By Damien Knight

Deep in the darkest corner
Where the mind goes to rest
Here I find you waiting
I become The Shadows guest

Here you offer me the chair
For now you command the night
Here you paint a picture
Of pain, joy, and sorrows light

As I try to stand you stop me
Words whispered about grace
And I sit again waiting
Hoping you will reveal your face

And then you speak to me
Your voice is strong
I am the one hiding you say
In my fear of being wrong

You are my Knight in the shadows
The angel of my very dreams
And yet it is my waking
That I see not all is as it seems

Only then do I realize the meaning
Only then do I understand
That only with you I have meaning
You are the one holding my hand

Look Past

Look past the dark brown hair
The speckled green eyes
Look Past the shit eatting grin
I seem to be grinning at you
Look past the walls and barriers
I have constructed so gingerly
Look past the bitter hatred
That is the door to me
Look past and see
That in your hands the key
Look past then look forward
into my eyes lost and empty
Look forward and know
Only you can now free me
Look forward and stare into the soul
For there lies the true goal
Look away you should not
Because then it would break me
Look away and you will never see
The kind of man I could be
Look past my faults
Give me the chance
Look into the heart of me
Unlock the door with the hearts key
