False Sympathies (Dec 2012)

By Damien Knight

All the kindness in the world
Is not enough to save this man
It won’t bring back my girl
It won’t help me to stand
It’s empty platitudes
Without love it is nothing
So don’t expect my gratitude
Or hope your raven sings
The endeavor to cheer my heart
It is utterly pointless
You lied from the start
Without her my life is worthless
Feign compassion for likes if you will
My eyes won’t smile, if looks could kill

Alone

By Damien Knight

Another moment of sorrow I wonder why

Behind my eyes do these tears lie

And when I try not to cry

I find that within my soul dies

I woke tears streaming down

I am wet as if I were to drown

And not even you turn my frown

I can’t just turn around

I fall asleep no name

I am empty all the same

And life remains lame

Like a petty game

I can’t remember the last time I felt

This deck of cards that was dealt

Is like a harsh and heavy belt

The heat of the smack making the skin melt

I dream empty lies

And I know when I die

I will no longer cry

And no one will be at my side

Isolation

By Damien Knight

Dark and cold lonely isolation
Left alone in desperation
Melting Into the night
Nothing Is all right

Wasted ever so gone away
Lost without the light of day
Fading into the wind
Becoming nothingness without end

All because of a lost love
My angel my only dove
Now I have nothing left
Only major regrets

Alone

By Damien Knight

Another moment of sorrow I wonder why
Behind my eyes do these tears lie
And when I try not to cry
I find that within my soul dies
I woke tears streaming down
I am wet as if I were to drown
And not even you turn my frown
I can’t just turn around
I fall asleep no name
I am empty all the same
And life remains lame
Like a petty game
I can’t remember the last time I felt
This deck of cards that was delt
Is like a harsh and heavy belt
The heat of the smack making the skin melt
I dream empty lies
And I know when I die
I will no longer cry
And no one will be at my side

My Dream

I am dark, my light is gone
Only she can make me strong
But she is a dream
A mere fantasy it seems
I wake and he lays beside me
He is my world all I see
But even now I wake alone
No one but me on my own
I swallow my pain
Tears give me no gain
I see her black hair
But she is not there
He is real but not a light
She is my dream, feels so right
The chains that bind
Nothing like our bound minds
