speak to me..

Published September 16, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

words alive
thriving within
springing fresh life
where we’ll begin..
becoming your poetry
undressing me slow
Layer by layer
as we go…
revealing the depths
of things unknown..
a wanton need
for you to read
all that I am..
exposing a spirit that can’t be tamed
a love that won’t be named..
hang in my wait time
as we discover anew
the many things we never knew..
mysterious and painful
it may be..
let’s delight
in watching us grow
it is food for our souls that will be whole..

what if..

Published September 6, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

if I leave the light on
will my shadow come to life..
will you know I’m real
will you feel all my feels..
if I stay still
will I fade into the night
no light bright enough to save me..
will my secrets be revealed
showing nothing to conceal..
what if I leave the lights on
Will the dark ever end
can the night sky touch my soul
making me whole..
what if..

Jagged edges..

Published August 30, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

we are the beauty we speak
unique, joyful
in the love we seek..
edges smoother
there is no defeat..
roaring through
scars & bruises alike
so much to gain
in life’s pain..
unevenly shaped
beautifully jagged
heart torn ragged
from the irregular
spectacular love
we shape..

dear me..

happy to be here
happy to see
i’m swept up in moments
dear to me..
always changing
always knowing
blessed in life
when I am growing..
reflecting
enjoying
taking it in..
pining for more
moments I adore..
jump for love
soar with its’ highs
grow through the lows..
breathing in deeply
the sorrows and woes..
exhaling it out
as the beauty unfolds
the gifts of love
my heart holds..

Beguiled…

Published August 14, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Chaotic
Murderous
enchanting all the same
this game of love
has no name..
Beguiling
charming
enthralling is your pain..
no sight in end
where my bending takes root..
heart is blackened daily by all your soot..
winning
losing
is there such a thing..
Diseased, teased
you rob me of my strength
The malaise is mine
our hearts intertwined
I’ll wear the chaos
I’ll walk the pain
this heart & mind
know only your name..

Light my fire…

Published July 27, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

our love is the blue hour
quietly hidden
between day and night..
sparking colors that didn’t exist
lighting up moments I can’t resist
letting go of you
would be to forfeit life..
heart is wide open
breathing in your every word..
growing – shifting -bending- flowing
love is there
always ending
with new beginnings..

Indelible

Published July 2, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

the ink has dried
pages worn
edges weathered
so forlorn..
Wrapped your love around me like a chain
couldn’t withstand the hurricane..
Words indelible
quieting my heart..
unspoken things
between the lines
staining my soul..
with each moment they fade
making me whole..
closing the book
we are no more
between the beats of my heart
forever more..

Whole…

I kiss each wound
where it’s begun..
The hurt shrouded beneath the brilliance of the sun..
i wish the beauty of it to dance over you
healing all that’s been stung..
time to let go
the winds howl loud
a doleful cry is heard above the clouds…
where you were torn
will be shorn no more..

Tracing lines of my soul…

Published May 28, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Tracing lines of my soul

found my breath while I was drowning..
Slow fire burning
Oh how Im yearning..
Heartbeats yours
loud, fierce
gentle, strong..
determined to live out what’s mine
a wrinkle of time is all
that’s begun..
warmth stirs my soul
lingering on
like the beauty of the sun and the stories it holds..

Ghosting..

Published May 27, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Ghosting…

moving, breathing
raw inside
There are no words for things I hide
wondering, pondering
where did i go…
was it real
am I here
Is it all fear…
Invisible, gone
ghosting is strong
fighting through hard
it’s all wrong…
heart of steel
be gone..
