Rage

By Damien Knight

Forget the anger the pain the tears
The hated stare of my eyes in the mirror
Empty cold basket of despair
My burden alone to bare

I am tired of the echoing in my head
It used to be so much I’d wish myself dead
Now I just wish it were silent
These thoughts left unsaid

I can’t cry due to blinding rage
I am trapped in my body, this infernal cage
I peck at the bars and crow
But outsiders laugh as if it were stage

My life is not your amusement
I am not just a character for torment
I too am a man
With feelings I lament

My Rose

By Damien Knight

A thorn that traces
the side of my flesh
is lovelier than any flower
in my garden.

The sighs I expel
when she is gone
could fog the evening
and form the dew.

The growl she elicits
when she is near
just under breath
I must control.

This hungry love
I feel so deep
this longing
I never want it to go.

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

Tired

Anyone else tired of the death?

By Damien Knight
I’m tired, tired of the death 

Of the spread of blood

Tired of the gunshots

Taking those beloved

Early to their graves

I’m tired of thought and prayers

That don’t save

The innocents lost

I’m tired

But nothing is done

Because who cares the cost

Take our guns, 

Our freedom they shriek

What about the church

The praying meek

Their freedom less than?

But I’m tired

Of this being our…

Memory

By Damien Knight
She was my heart

I was her fire

Oceans a part

Close in mind

Passions burn

Dancing torch

I still yearn

For her voice

Alas we seperated

Through the viel

My life dedicated

To her memory

Fade Away

By Damien Knight

Dropped tears down a crystal face.

I’m glass, a shattered flower vase.

Never allowed my beauty.

You robbed me of my petals.

You stole my shine,

All for your own benefit.

I had aspirations, dreams

You tore each one at the seams

I won’t let you haunt me

I shake away the chains

Of bitter memories

So fade away darkness
