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

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…

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..

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..

Love of mine…

you took up residence in my head
seeding a warmth in my heart..
unpredictable is our path
we are the miracle in the middle of it..
my soul blooming for you
grooming a love that couldn’t be contained..
no right
no wrong
simply where we belong..
no template for what’s begun
a recognition
an exploitation of love that has taken its’ run..

air beneath my feet…

flying
or stuck
this gilded cage of mine..
breathing or suffocating
the walls are closing in..
lost myself along the way
do I have to stay..
everything I ever knew
came from you..
I feel the air beneath my feet
rattling my bones
breaking it down
building it up
I see the door
the way out..
listen to my shout
flutter your wings
let’s change the scene..

Quarantined love…

one way ticket
enjoy the ride…
will we survive
as we walk this in stride..
is it my heaven or
hell that’s arrived…
what you imagine is what you will see…
it can be easy
free as the breeze
or lock you down cold
struck with disease…
hope is a dream
not always what it seems…
Detours here
Detours there
Sometimes happy
sometimes they scare…
seven years passed
like water under the bridge…
for a brief moment in time
our lives paused
giving us cause to love without laws..

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…

Published March 22, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

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…
