tiniest second…

Published April 3, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

you filter through the pane…
sheltering in deeper and deeper
all of it in vain
no glass thick enough to keep away the pain…
hand reaches out
fingers tracing yours…
For the tiniest second you have everything to gain…
searching deep within
you no longer know your name…
each tear rolling down
sweeps you to the ground…
breaking the glass
I’ll clean up the shard… time will stand still
until the parts of your divided heart heal…

alive in the fall…

in the quiet
I’m there…
when you’re not looking
unaware…
the lull of my voice
leads you there…
Loud in your heart
pushing and pulling
leaving no choice…
what will you do
who is it that rules…
Can’t part the sea
to reach the shore…
Undertow looming
till you’re no more…
The ground racing toward you
alive in the fall…
I’m hidden in the details
Greatest secret of all…

Canvas me..

unbleached cloth
your love seeping through me…shaping my heart until it’s tightly woven…a canvas to you – Paint me what you will…my colors vibrant by your gentle touch – happy to mix it up…changing shades in your storm – set sail with me – in the sea of love we have formed…

Rooted..

solid strong our house won’t fall… bones are good changing with time like petrified wood… banged around chips hit the ground… melodic pain it’s worth the gain… we scatter but won’t shatter into pieces we don’t know… we built us well… time will tell

Symphony of you..

Published February 11, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Tugging, pulling 

the music is cued..
Heart strings dangling  
waiting on you..
wound up tight 
Fill me with dread 
Or sheer delight..
It’s a choice 
your choice
which do you choose…
elaborate 
full spectrum 
You bring on the charm
Symphony in my head
sound the alarm..
it’s music 
our music 
we don’t skip a beat
Let’s waste moments together 
while we bruise in the heat..
blood vessels may rupture but what do we care 
a little discoloring 
we will not scare..
We’re classic 
complex 
symphonic at best..
our love is relentless 
when put to the test..

Only just begun..

moments are fleeting
my heart is bleeding 
feels incomplete..
was it enough
did I reach you 
teach you 
as I become a mime with time..
does your heart know what mine has sown 
from the moment you began..
words collapse on my tongue as I become undone 
in awe of the human you have become..
independent

confident
you wear it well..
breaking free 
while I hold so
tight
reigning you in with my might..
my heart overflows with stories untold..
beaming with pride 
I’ll let your hopes dance
not fearing the past that cannot last..

Liquid sunshine…

burning through my bones
whiskey to my soul 
we come to life with the love we’ve sown 
the only home I’ll ever know..
dancing in the breeze 
free as the leaves 
floating through air..
Love is what it does 
We are what we do 
So simple I dare..
I drink you in
you are my skin..
