Where do I stand?

I tell you I love you
I mean it
I mean it
Baby you tell me nothing
This can’t be It
Can’t be it…
I need to know princess
Because the silence is death
it’s death
Where to I stand?
on solid ground
or quicksand?

Letting Go

By Damien Knight

I can’t remain bitter at one
Heartbroken at the other
I can’t hold on
When I need to release
I have to just smile
The pain will fade
At the end of the day
I will find solace knowing
I loved and I have lost
I can love again, someone new
Someone bold and bright
Who accepts me for who I am
Someone who will stay
Someone I can please
And who pleases me
Someone prepared for the cost
Mentally of being with me
Someone who is true
When I find you I will love you

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.

My Offering     


Take my bloody heart
Tear my body apart
I lived for you
I will die in you
This is my wretched life
And I am not the wife
I expected to be
I wonder if you see
My deepest desires
Feel the burning fires
That is my bleeding arm
Watch the cut no harm
This is my devotion
My blood in motion
You are my sun and moon
My shadow in the noon
And here I am at your altar
To give you my offer
My ultimate sacrifice
You are my ultimate vice
I made you into my lord
And I worshiped you with my word
I hold this bleeding heart
Taking it you tear it apart
You hated me so much
Yet you longed for my touch
Now have me forever
For the dead can’t move, ever
And that I give to you
My one love so untrue

Forgive Me

I watch my pain
Flow in and out
And pour down
Like the rain

I have always been
Never left, I stayed
Waiting, hoping, nothing
This I will do till the end

Even though it’s pointless
To wait and futile to hope
my heart continues to forgive
Nothing is pointless

So long as I don’t die
I will be there hidden
For I am never in the open
And hidden I cry

Should you ever lose out
I am here waiting silently
Crying desperately forgive me
I believe in you no doubt

My dream is to die
Peacefully in the shadow’s arms
For he is constant
Until then forgive me I cry

Forgive me for being me
Annoying, pestering, doubtful
All these things I am
Forgive me for I truly see

Fall Before Beauty

By Damien Knight

I hold in my mind bitter fantasy
Chains scrape against my grey skin
I long to feel fair lips and soft hands
Holding onto my dead heart within

Only when my unbeating heart
Is captured in the fair maiden’s hands
Am I free to serve her love
And if she drops it I shan’t stand

In weakness I fall before the maiden
And her hand becomes my resting place

The Shadows Torment

By Damien Knight

((From a dream I had))

Slowly approaching the dark mistress
My own mind in distress
Passion outweighs infatuation
Screaming in utter frustration
Her anger I see has no bounds
Her stare louder than any sound
I have been her only dreams
Her life was with me it seems
A thousand lies on who I am
No one knows or understands
The burning fire of hell in me
I am blind can’t you see
A soldier dead cannot be dying
A man like me is always lying
And so I continue my masquerade
Playing at this game of charades
But It infuriates her even more
And she slams shut the door
To the heart of my salvation
My own secret adoration
No I pushed way to deep
And now I get no sleep
If only I could reverse my lies
Then I as the shadow wouldn’t die
*I am the Shadow. I am a Lie*



Heart ripped from my breast
I know I wasn’t the best
Obsessive, selfish, and lost
Now I’m paying the cost
Of being overbearing
And constantly wearing
Out your nerves
Forgive me, seems you love her
But slowly my heart
Tears me apart
Then falls unbeating
Wake me, I’m dreaming
Goodnight, goodnight, my death
This is my last breath
So, say au revoir
I must run far
Sleep deep and wake
With a new uptake
Embrace my name
No more games
I wake no longer apart
I become Blackheart
