An Aldaria Poem: A Father’s Remorse

By Damien Knight

(Story poem from Koraki Saros Kanosis to his imprisoned daughter.)

I am sorry my child for your pain
For the suffering you lived
The raging guilt drives me insane
If I heeded my head
Yet I headed my heart instead
If I had not done so carelessly
Dear sweet Lidie my angel
You would be here in my house with me’=
I only ask you forgive this old crow
How sorry I am you never will know

Savior

By “Ayana Kanosis”

I want You
I need you
Stop trying to run from me
I wish you
I dream you
Why do you hide from me
My shadow
My savior
You know it does not pay to fight
The feelings
The heartache
You are not as dead as night
You’re thinking
You’re dreaming
Look I am right beside you
I’m screaming
And crying
As the blade charges at me
My hands
My feet
They don’t want to move
You see me
You feel pain
You come in front of me
The horror
The shock
As the blades run through you
Then mist
And shadows
Overtake me and wrap around me
The shadow
The mist
It’s you protecting me
Don’t hide
Don’t run
I need you here with me
I know
I see
How scared you really are
But I love
And I need
For you to see me here
