A Bitter Lover

By Damien Knight

you gave me passion, fed me lies
kisses were confused for affection
but it was all misdirection
and you the lord of demise

You tried to reap my love, dear
but you only bred passionate despite
you wanted a bedfellow instead I’m a knight
and I won’t cave to fear

year after year I try to let go
but the bitterness toward you grows
and one day I will be truly free
and forget all these fucked up memories

Research Paper

By Damien Knight

I stare at the paper eager to write

all my notes sitting before me

I put up my dukes ready to fight

but no muscles and a blank memory

I keep reorganizing typing and deleting

Ten pages of research are you serious!

Typing so much my hands sting

all this writing makes me delirious

Will the result be worth it

or ten pages of hot garbage

hey if I can get a degree in bull shit

I guess I’ll give them this verbal carnage

Despairing World

By Damien Knight

The world is twisted, crying mass
loud and screaming violent place
peace and love seems to pass
and kindness blind from the human race
the blood of innocents
on the hands of angry men
leave behind hated prints
of the ultimate sin
The sin of bigotry and hate
a crime of the uncivilised
I hope we leave such a state
a world where none are victimized

The Climb

By Damien Knight

 

I stood eager at the foot of the mountain
Looking up gear on my back
Fear in my heart, rope in hand, I climb
Hope the summit would be surmounted
I fight every rock along the path
Every boulder smashed, every cliff I scale
I will climb this just as I do every story I tell
I won’t be held back by worry
At the top a man can look below at earth
He can see his dreams, the accomplishments
Every obstacle now so small
This trial shows a man his ultimate worth

Bliss

By Damien Knight

I remember the day we met
Our eyes young and fresh
You were a handsome face
I just in the right place
Coffee in hand sugar in piles
You josh me with a smile
And I was smitten
I would dream of you
And we would laugh
We had so much fun together
Cuddling, talking, and shopping
You indulged my childish ways
And I hoped we’d stay
11 years we been bliss
Each day a part is a moment to miss
May our love always grow
And from you I never go
