Across the Sea

By Damien Knight

Reeled back in once again
My heart can’t be forgiven
Love, only you I long
My soul crys the raven’s song
Anika Sora, the sky falls
Cuz I don’t have you at all
I would give anything
That my princess here with me
Alas I am a lonely king
And my dreams live across the sea

To Stone (2011)

By Damien Knight

Don’t think ill of me
I feel like sand
Sand under pressure
Turns to stone once more
Love I know that doubt
In the sub-spaces of my mind
Is not who I really am
My heart isn’t ice
Remember it melted away
To the warmth of your love

Lost Work

By Damien Knight

Every line, every verse I wrote today
Lost, an entire page of poems written
But like a fickle woman it did not stay
I wrote of love, and of pain ALAS!
What kind of curse is this that it’s gone
An hour of writing, like lost song
I will mourn my paper of poems
And hold myself high and remain headstrong

Lady of Sky

By Damien Knight

Like vapour on the wind
You run through my fingers.
What I did I can’t defend.
Will my guilt forever linger?
I write line after line
Of love lorn sorrow eternal.
Sora, the sky isn’t mine!
This battle of fire is internal.
Grasping at the dirt of earth
I am in desperate plea.
Something, perhaps loves rebirth
I need you to break me free!
The walls around my paper heart
Might seem insurmountable.
Beloved, when we’re apart
I feel insecure, border unstable.
Is it weakness to confess this pain?
Would you no longer call me king?
Without your love I feel insane
Your withdrawl from dreams has such sting

Agony

By Damien Knight

Here we go on the spinning wheel
The world bizzare and I lost
Who could profess such to me
No! It’s not I at sanities cost
For Mars I was never enough
For Seattle I loved to much
Misty, my crystal dream, died young
And I live without a womans touch
No, none could love me
I despair how am I like this
Such is my pain, eternal agony
I thought I knew now I’m broken

Her Silence

By Damien Knight

Do I lose hope, give up faith
Is it all lost to me
Every moment, every dream
I keep chasing a lost fantasy

Her silence during my hour
Like a knife against my chest
Added to the wounds to my back
Even now my heart gets no rest

I want to rest myself in her
Kiss her lips and gaze her face
My heart cautious, optimistic
I know it is not my love I misplace
