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

In Every Dream

They call me Kim Soo Ah
Friends call me Kimmy
She smiled bright with cherub glow
I handed her fallen books
Blushed with nerves I stole away
From her radiance
I lamented my parting so
Describing her emery hair
To shop keep as being a violent sea
Of dark obsidian streaked
With natural ebony browns
Her curls pinned behind doll like ears
Eyes of honey brown cinnamon
I cursed my anxious shy nature
Shop Keep laughed and says to me
Not all men are winners see
Yet she after me pursued
To my utmost astonishment
And traded numbers
She texted later to my good fortune
To ask to dine that night with me
So out we go but before
I show up at Soo Ah’s door
Dressed in lovely white sun gown
She bids me in to wait
She tend her make up, I sit down
On tapes I see a name
“Sorah’s Don’t Touch”
So Rah? Soo Ah? Or is this Sora?
I call to her and ask
Who is Sorah?
Those tapes are a friend’s.
She pops one in and I watch
The girl dressed in vibrant Han Bok
sings a most  lovely melody
The friend filming claps at end
“Fantastic Sora, beautiful as always.”
She cheers, I shut it off and sigh
So realistic, I mutter, every detail
The apartment, the campus, the store
But Sora, I am dreaming, and it’s you again
Can I not escape the lady of mist?
Will these visions never end?
She sees my sad smile
Oh, then it’s you, Damien?
That, Damien, where are you
Kentucky fair one, asleep
And where, Anika, are you?
Looking for you in every dream

Ever Raging Dreams

I close my eyes and I see her
Sat on a bench alone
Her son in stroller laughs
I watch from a distance
Seperate, yet there I see
I desire to reach to her
I wish to share with her my heart
Pour my soul to her like wine
Yet he approaches and I open my eyes
I never wanted to leave Sora
My desire isn’t for the dreams to fade
All those others just vapid shadows
I, in her life, just an empty shade
Watching having never met her
Wishing with no clue if she is real
I close my eyes once more to dream
Waiting stories to be seen
She’s with me laughing, a joke I told
Her hair swept up she’s ageless
While I seem ever so old
I leaned to examine the way her eyes light
My heart longs for her shine ever bright
My deep fear, finding my Sora
Only to push her far away
My heart a wall, a fortress
My dreams my prison, my empty cage
Sealing me with sorrow
Filling my souls eternal rage
If she is out there, patient waiting
The maiden who my heart doth dream
Forgive me Tsuki, my troubled moon
I am but the storm at sea
The swirling typhoons
In your dark monsoon season
The agonies of eternal love
Yet even if i’m the epitome
Of your ever increasing dark despair
If I am not your knight from heaven above
Know I’ve longed for you’re happiness
To stand aside you, in solidarity
To hear your pain, cheer your bliss
I wish to be there beloved lady of dreams

Lingering Here

The desire to reach out and touch you
To hold you against my heart
It overwhelms me so that I dream
And see you once again
Your name is clear in view
I scant know how to react
Why can’t my heart ignore this
And listen to my head when I say
It isn’t her, leave her there where she is
Are you Sora? No Sora is the moon
Sora is the pull of my raging sea
The ebb and flow of the tides
The muse of every single dream
Yet, are you Anika Sora who I once
Called Lady Aniya oh I already know
It can’t be because she’s tied up
To another broken hopeless dream
And that bitter love doesn’t involve me
Yet I dream I’m looking at my phone
To see a message on my Facebook
From her, a light in my dark dreams
Sweet Hoa, the blossom, and I stared at her
Profile, a face I’d known yet never will see
Outside my dreams, I sigh, no it won’t be
I shan’ t chase a star when the universe calls
Besides I can’t ask a stranger to love me

Thin Line

I walk a thin line posting this
my heart aches an anxiety but my soul
Would scold me if I hid my poetry
How I fear her breaking every time
We speak of these troubled rhymes
I’ve cried so oft in discussion
with aching heart and weighted soul
I dream yet I fear to confuse more
Alas here is my heart in bitter dreams outpour
I won’t suppress my feelings when this is my abode


An empty night with naught a vision
A morning with black screen to see
Why is it that she leaves me lonsome
Broken here without a single dream
I wait upon the darkened hour
Writing as I always have
And no hope here to find her
In visions which I’ve scoured
Lovely maiden of the light
Whose slender hands I’ve dreamt held mine
I will not give up seeking you
My hearts love is pure, To Aniya i’m true

Remind You?

Each day passes I miss you more
How can I dream so vivid see you
My heart is tired broke for sure
I just want to see you again
A night ago I dreamt you
Held you close breathed in
“Change me” a quiet request
How can I with what I’m given
I love every perfection, every flaw
I dare not ask how I do this
It is not love to change you at all
“My mind, remind me,” a whisper.
I wish I could my dearest princess
I cannot remind that which only you have
Not even with the fairy tale “true loves kiss.”

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

Constant Worry. Sora?

I am troubled for her
My soul in constant worry
Dreamt she dived toward death
If ever were she to leave
I am sure I will of wept
Her hair flow like ebony water
Along the falls current
I pull her from the river
Into my broad arms
“Sora!” I cry as I pump water
From her chest and she opens
Her honey glazed eyes
“Leave me to my demise!”
Legs are cut from braving
The waterfall, for I dove after
“I rather die than feel so alone”
Sora you aren’t alone never alone
Forever Koraki is with you
Forever I whisper my love
Forever Koraki swears to guide you
Sweet blossom from above

Find You (2012)

By Damien Knight

I can’t breathe my sweet one
My darling cherry blossom in June
When I do I inhale your perfume

I mustn’t sleep! It’s a risk I take.
See your nails my flesh they scrape
And I call your name out when I wake

You dance aflame in visions and dreams
Then vanish a mist quick as came to me
Please stay hold me at the seams

Every night I dream you I adore
Each vision I fall for you more and more
One day Aniya I’ll find you for sure!

I can feel it welling up
The pain, the thoughts, the sorrow
My depression I keep fighting
The anger at tomorrows
Tears I battle, bat them back
Empty anger, lonely rage
I pull her close, cold
My heart locked in iron cage
Her icy lips I kiss
She’s my comfort now
A figment, a doll, a dream
No one else needed somehow
I can’t be party to hope anymore
It’s all coincidence, lies
I’ll sleep and forget
That I was ever weak enough to cry
False prophecy, years of dreams
Threads I threw all like sand
I hate them all wish I never seen
I wish never to dream again
