Eternal Sleep

I cannot stop thinking of her face
The strands of hair like twisted lace
How I miss her warm embrace

My soul is cold, dark and dreary
I wander the world alone and weary
Dreaming that one day she’ll be near me

Caged the rage of sorrows hidden deep
With her I’ll find eternal sleep
Hidden in the mountains steep

Fly upon the wings of dragons
Love’s a battle we can’t win
If we fight the heart with in

So I cast my sword aside for her
Strong she makes my heart assured
I’ll dream of loves soft verse

What is Reality?

Be still my beating heart
As you lean against my chest
How your ivory face is carved
And I delight in your delicate art

The curve of your structure
As you gaze admiringly at me
Can I deny the constant heart beat
A man so steady you make so unsure

Stay with me forever, mine to protect
I say this only to wake once more
Alone without your comfort I sigh
A reality without you is one I reject

So while I wait and write these words
I will see you there in my dreams
String my fingers through your curls
And hope some how my love is heard

Forever Sworn to Sora

Fair Sora, once more I dreamt of you
Leaned in my arms, watery eyes
I should not speak to her, my love,
For I keep hearing your sweet song
I try so hard to be a guiding light
With words of patience and verse
In the end it only makes matters worse
I love every ebony strand of hair
The curve of lips in smile curled
I describe your loveliness
With such care and diligence
When I do she slides from lucid
To a world not real, a dream I can’t feel
Every time, though I never claim false
I find myself in humble apology
Sora, I sigh, I am sorry, so sorry
I never proclaimed to love or desire
After all only MY SORA has my fire
But, whispering doubt seeps like toxins
What if? Wall the heart, Damien Knight,
Guard the soul from her, from dreams
I try every time, but my heart won’t listen
I want to be beside the lady of shadows
Ever persistent I won’t let this love go
Yes, dear Sora, last night I held tight
My heart desires only your true light
When you wake from your dreams
I know you cannot remember me
No, not the way, I see you in glow
I will wait, eternal, sworn forever, for you

Strong For Her (2012)

By Damien Knight

At my weakest, I’m still strong
You might think how I am is wrong
I hold out my heart, pour the soul
All I am written in my words
All see what is my outpour
Spilling on page, read and be sure
Even she will know me well
Here Sora can even tell
My heart is that of a warrior
My soul, a lover, bound to her

Moving On

By Damien Knight

I refuse to fall in love again
I want to fall in love again

My heart is conflicted, tight in my chest
My head confused a foggy mess
My emotions run amok, I can’t think straight
But I feel like a king, I feel great

I want to run from this feeling
I want to bask in this feeling

I fear that this is another rebound
My decision to love again unsound
Once more with “Good Morning Princess”
I just can’t help, I want this

I am scared to move on
I must, need to move on

Because my heart doesn’t lie
And as a man I shouldn’t cry
I will be slow, follow my head
No more tears will be shed

I want to fall in love again
I want to bask in this feeling
And I must, need to move on
It’s how I will keep living

The Words That Break Your Spirit

By Damien Knight

I am use to having little to no money. I once was so poor that I had found 20 ways to use scraps to flavour ramen. Still when you look your youngest in the eye and tell them :

“Please quit begging I don’t have food to give you.”

Those are words that break a mans spirit. I blog because I love to write but I also am doing this so I never have to look my children in the eye and tell them we can’t eat. We come a long way since 2009.

I am grateful to everyone who reads my posts. Please if you like our pieces support us on Patreon.
