Lifeless Soul by Nomar Knight

Lifeless Soul
By Nomar Knight

I'm a prisoner of my mind
No longer warm and kind
Darkness escapes my pores
Simple smile becomes a chore

The demons come from need
Gauging eyes until I bleed
Ripped my heart from my chest
Life's cruelest horror test

Play back old scenes of love
In search of peaceful doves
Black ravens caw and stare
And nobody seems to care

The end squeezes life dry
Never answering why
Nothing left but wait and die
While vultures circle dark sky

Sounds of hell hounds abound
Evil creatures surround
The final bill is due
Lifeless soul without a clue

Wait Till... by Nomar Knight

Wait till…
By Nomar Knight

Wait till they get a load of me.
They are blind fools you see.
While I hunt their vulnerable flock.
Letting them protect their stock.
It's the ninety-nine percent that goes.
Disappearing into the shadows.
Like fragile pieces of glass.
Family units out of gas.

Got to love technology at hand.
Distracts them like a marching band.
Too busy wasting their lives.
Living in monotonous hives.
While corporate greed steals their knees.
They fork up the extra fees.
Precious treasure slips through their grasp.
I squeeze every breath till the last gasp.

With morbid discovery comes shock and awe
Widened eyes and dropped jaws.
My masterpiece I gift to them.
Leave them guessing as to when.
Like frantic ants under attack.
They scatter about both front and back.
For death is pure certainty.
Wait till they get a load of me.

Fall Into My Darkness by Nomar Knight


Fall into my darkness and dare to live once more
Scream away the pain you hold in your core
Let me guide your soul through the abyss of love
Wash away tears as we soar up above

Fall into my darkness in eternal pleasure
Collectors of death and skull treasure
Abandon the chains of damnation
Passion will arm you with vengeful castration

Fall into my darkness and be free like me
Light's blinding glare collects its fee
Embrace the soothing moon and stars
Together we'll dance the world will be ours

Fall into my darkness and bask in our moans
We are more than just a collection of bones
With the world at your feet my goddess of night
Conquests-a-plenty with your forever dark Knight

Chronicles of a Tormented Teacher: Tests.

Chronicles of a Tormented Teacher


     Lately, I've been designing tests that are like a serene field until the unprepared wander carelessly not knowing that it's all a minefield. Last week a few students blew up. While it served as a rude awakening for them, my suspicions were confirmed. We are cultivating a corrupt society. Sorrow crept inside me, yet I wielded the lesson like a sledgehammer. Better to die in my war than to live in a land where real terror dwells.  
     Consequences must be real. I know this, yet I did not push for suspension. Instead, I found solace in arranging a silent, quiet torment. I hand out rewards to those worthy of receiving them. For this semester, the wounded will lose out on that privilege. 
     Amazingly, the kids have noticed something different about me this year. Some don't like it. Perhaps they see an emptiness in my eyes, or an intolerance built by time. I'm trying to do my best. I learned many years ago from one of my great teachers that I should always do my best and let God do the rest.  While I try to walk in the light, I gravitate to darkness. It's who I've always been. Such a delicate dance between dark and light, fire and ice. 
     Ah well, I must rest. Maybe tomorrow the light will win. Maybe...maybe not.

Fractured by Nomar Knight

By Nomar Knight

I smile to sell illusion
My laughter is all the rage
A mask hides confusion
Yet I'm stuck in a cage

Ready to keep busy
Maintain a quiet presence
Dark thoughts make me dizzy
Brought down by hard lessons

I'm fractured inside
And nobody cares
Feelings I do hide
So they don't all stare

Heart bleeds dry
Not like they notice
Can't see me cry
Got to maintain focus

I'm fractured inside
Yet I get up every day
Will the pain subside
Must be a better way

To hear her voice once more
Would mend these old bones
Fractured to the core
Always so alone

Each night I go to bed
With no one at my side
Soon I'll be dead
All fractured inside

Wipe it Away!

Wipe it Away!

By Nomar Knight

Wipe it away! Make sure to get it all.
Night becomes day. Mustn't take the fall.

Wipe! Wipe it away! The stains must come off.
Keep them at bay. Secrets revealed by a cough.

Wipe! Wipe! Wipe it away! Sweat mixes with blood.
Damn DNA. Don't be another dud.

Wipe! Wipe it away! They can't see what you've done.
Play another day. Go on a murderous run.

Wipe it away! Someone will come for you.
Maybe not today. Best stay out of view.

Consequences of Success

Consequences of Success

By Nomar Knight

There's a target on my back
Success launches a thousand knives
Steps become harder to track
Truth drowned out by lies

Become great at spotting hate
Evil glances as if to dismember
Be careful what you ask of fate
Failure is what they hope to remember

Don't satisfy ignorant fools
Take things to the next level
Incorporate new tools
Who cares if they see the devil

March to your own beat
Aggressively take what's yours
Golden throne your new seat
Desire and sweat open doors

And if you feel you had enough
That being amazing is bad
Stow a plan in your cuff
It's fun to make them all mad
