Worth the fall..

Published February 18, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

those ears.. eager to hear what they wish to believe

They listen with hunger and zest

wishing to settle all this unrest

Pour it all out – little by little

gleaning it up until You get your fill

and it becomes the absolute real even as it sits you still..

One lie turns into many and the truth gets lost until a lie is all that’s left

at such a cost – it’s crushing heavy in your chest..

It will leave you walking on your knees as you grieve what you can’t perceive..

Stand strong – don’t give in to fit where you don’t belong..

Comfort is a tough thing to give away

Don’t fear what you don’t know

Allow yourself to grow

Stand tall

The end game is worth the fall..

Turn the Page..

I see empty space through your face as time stands still..

Those child eyes alive with fear that always see more than there is

I see it too

I travel through you

Sitting beautifully still and feeling everything you do

Miles away – you still shine through

completing everything I thought I knew

Come what may I won’t fade away, though it’s hazy and turning gray..

memories will hold me

And carry us through

There’s no escaping the fate of you..

I’ll keep you safe as I tuck us in and brace for the phase about to begin..

What’s etched on the heart is here to stay though the words keep changing day by day..

we may put to rest the story we knew

But the pages keep turning for me & you..

Something of us..

aging and sagging in place of the smiles

Exhaustion and tiredness instead of sweet miles

Our eyes becomes shaded and jaded with time

And genuine hopefulness turns on a dime

But stand where He is and hold out your hand

He sees beauty and grace across my face

Restoring and loving me despite my haste

Because of His wonderfulness I can finish this race..

I love the nothing that makes me long to be that something of us..

Pull your string
Watch you beam
and act like it is all as it seems..
your house looks like it’s made of stone – strong and solid to the bone..
Opened you wide
hidden inside
is an inner layer filled with hate – no one able to knock down that gate..
Moments that words can no longer reach –
someone like you they cannot teach
though You’re gone – i see your face
I always say you only need space
Give me the time – give me your mind
I’ll grind out your insides as you unwind..
set up new wiring and restring you throughout-
pulling them tight until they’re just right..
as you move about with sheer delight,
your light will once again learn to shine bright..

Fairy Dust…

Published February 5, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

I loved you before I knew what it was

My heart calling out before I could verbalize your name..

Walking toward you before I understood you existed

A longing – I felt

a yearning – I taste

a reckoning of the soul to be made whole..

It beckons me..

I envy the peace of the dead

The quiet in the head-

one I’ve never known..

They want me to hold on

Feel the heartbeat – don’t give in to defeat..

My beginning never got to start

Now I ask you – put me in the ground

Let me end where I began

I can’t exist in this magical land

Let me be the fairy dust in your hand.

Why the inferno raging within..

you’re lost in the haze

Hidden in the blaze

It’s not in the look you create

Nor in the steps you make

Nor in the pretenses you strive to fake

Let the smoke choke out who you aren’t..

Don’t forget who you are..

each breath taken with care, purpose, passion..

deeply imbedded within

taste the goodness – feel the greatness –

live the fullness of life..

Give to yourself what you give to me

Such a beautiful human that needs to be free..

Wonderful beautiful you

Burn fiercely

shine brightly

walk strongly

unleash yourself from the games alight in your mind-

free from the lies being told

and leave behind the stories waiting to unfold..

Dazed & Confused..

You’re strolling – you’re walking – controlling the madness

Chanting and whispering with passion unfolding..

You start with a purpose and end at a loss

As the weight of the cross grows heavier with the mass..

you disappear -bit by bit – as each new thought and each new view is pounded into you..

Who can speak louder – who can overpower

Who can do most evil yet smell like a flower…

let’s cover up the stench

And bury the lies – until each truth simply dies..

Confusion abounds – your mission unclear –

Why oh why is it no one can hear…

I’m speaking I’m certain till I’m blue in the face

But we’ve lost something special – this human race-

without love as the base, we have no case..
