Erased…

Published May 24, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

words flooded my senses

heart slamming the fences

you left in your wake..

Asthmatic reaction – allergic to the lies i sanctioned..

I’m a walking book

wrinkled heart bleeding out

pierced by your hook..

my heart expressed through each phrase you possess..

my pain has been published through all that you gain

every word, every sentence and paragraph remain..

dreams like thunder

Lightning was desire

charred us up

it’s no wonder..

Slowly erasing all that is you

letter by letter

this paper heart gets better..

false memories so dear

as you disappear..

Reverie

Published May 22, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

lost in ones delight

Turn down the noise

Turn down the light

Take me back to the good ole days..

Where ways made sense

A daydream wasn’t a trance

Your vision had reason-not just a hallucination..

an impractical idea

A fanciful thought

Was what one sought..

take me to the past

where the good things last

paint me a picture of long ago

days of yore once more..

Take flight..

wings like stone

jagged to the bone

Cuts so deep

how long will you steep..

Something’s amiss within your soul

What will it take to make you whole..

Pieces of my heart stir with your words

slicing and dicing until they’re not heard..

An image that has left a permanent mark on my heart..

You press me hard

You press me soft

It comes out the same

Calling your name..

Slowly unfold me

Discover you don’t know me

Clip those wings

Set them free

feel the melody they choose to sing..

It will always be me

It will always be you..

Let’s wing our way through it

Glide your way home how it should be..

Take flight with me..

shame storm quieted..

Love me till the lights go out

Love me till my shouts aren’t doubt

let the love go quiet as I rise above

in the darkest hour you shine bright

your shadow overpowering me

Pure delight..

I can walk upright – shamed no more

cobwebs have withered into dust

my sight has been cleansed

I will do what I must

I’m not something wrong..

I belong

Give way…

Lamenting

mourning

hurting inside..

burying you deep

as if it’s something to hide..

Grieving is love that’s exploded inside..

fragments remain

keeping you sane

Just enough to shoulder the blame..

Shadow boxing here

Shadow boxing there

It’s worn you down

leveling you to the ground..

Stop fighting yourself

don’t do it alone

step into new space as you roam..

What is dead may never die

let it tear through the shadows of your sky..

May it thunder through to the silence of your heart..

hear the sounds of freedom as darkness gives way to light..

let the mourning change with the morning bright..

your mind will rewind

to promises of old

reliving stories you’ve been told

as it fills your soul

it will make you whole..

diseased by love

Published April 13, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

the more i know

the further i go

sinking into that rabbit hole…

It owns me

dethrones me

setting apart my heart

Bleeding me through depleting what i knew..

Part of me dies as i come alive..

beautiful disease

do what you please

cure me from the rot that eats my heart..

messy, chaotic, tangled and swept

adversely affected is all that I’ve kept..

Strange steps take us back

The cinder beneath guiding our feet

our minds go quiet

While our hearts riot..

in awe

amazed, uncertain

unsure

of all that our mind had never heard..

i hope this illness

can heal us

from all we’ve come to be

You’ve chiseled me down

I’ll wear this madness of you

like a crown..
