Slipping

By Damien Knight

Is thinking that I am slipping
What a mess my world of dreams has been
I never wanted to let things go
But I knew what I did would not be forgiven
I can’t forget your face, it hurts
I want to hear your voice so much
I know we won’t speak, I am sorry
I long so for your touch

Heartbroken Dreams

By Damien Knight

I fade away into my sheets
My fragile heart clenched to chest
I dispair, Aniya, we’ll never meet
Tonight the raven must rest

I will lay against tear stained pillows
Her name a ghost upon my lips
Never got the dream of hello
Nor did I feel her finger tips

Mother says be patient my boy
And perhaps I should, but Aniya I ache!
And I despise feeling like a toy
It’s my fault I feel such heartbreak

This crow sleeps with prayer on his tongue
That she still wants him around
But I’m to blame I said I was done
But she’s the best love I’ve ever found!

Live Life

By Damien Knight

I live my life filled with adventure
Rock climbing, travel, and surf
What does it matter, I dont have her?
I long to climb cliffs, her with me
To show her the falls of the Ohio,
To sit in theatre watching Dracula.
To enjoy the arts and outdoors,
Simply display my skill with spatula.
Life is amazing every day!
Fossil hunting with my children
Daughter sings, son builds displays.
When day is done and class complete,
I come home turn on reality T.V.
My guitar sits in a corner ready.
I turn on my laptop and write
This all is part of life for me.
I have all I could ever ask for,
Perfect kids, cats, dogs and house.
Still my Princess Aniya who I adore,
Not with me, she’s what’s missing.

The Bard

By Damien Knight

Why? What keeps bringing you to me?
I a lonely soul, dark, filled with agony.
It is true I am a romantic spirit,
Love, passion, lust, I dont fear it.
I write and spill my heart on page
Reciting verse like bard on stage.
Your constant presence new inspiration,
Inside the love of poetic creation.
It’s not me you see but he
My poetry evoking heart makes me happy.

Long Distance

By Damien Knight

Not every line is a story true,
Nor every verse a page for you.
My darling knows this heart of mine
She sees my pain and she’s divine.
I ache for her in true agony
I pleaded she reach for me.
In response she says “Yes sir.”
And instantly I’m there for her.
But true we have yet to meet,
So take a moment, have a seat.
She lives a rainy Washington city
While I live in lonely Kentucky.
I’ll love her ’til my dying day
For that is my way.

Languished

By Damien Knight

I languished tears at edge
selfish my desire
persistent my words a hedge
drowning the fire

my obsessive mind loud
feeding insecurity and lies
I gave weight, too proud
to admit them as false cries

What can I say?
In the past silence was the end
this is not the day
that I allow myself to bend

you ever bright my muse
a light dancing in my mind
your face lit the fuse
your voice soft and kind

You are love’s true desire
A princess for this pauper
You made me sire
and it is my eternal love I offer
