love’s fickle thorn..

Published December 4, 2022 by lamarrwenrich


lover of my heart
magnet to my soul
what began on that
unsuspecting day takes a toll..
a simple hello was all that was told
pushing me to the depths of the unknown..
unaware without a care
to blissful to be afraid
And a life of its’ own ran away
from the home I’ve always known
creating a love story with no roots to grow..
lost a part of me that day
finding its’ way into your soul
leaving me floundering
with no where to go..
vulnerable
scared
my steps are growing me
double edged sword
my just reward..

edge of desire
let’s reach higher
don’t say a word
just lie here beside me..
syllables twist us
getting in the way
defining how we should be
what we should see..
doubting arises
hysteria crisis
questioning who we are..
mind and heart reaching out
closing up the gap of doubt
looking to feel what is real
see what is true..
clean the slate
it’s not to late
let’s speak a language all our own
find me I’m yours
just take me home..

the crash of the waves
the sun setting low
creating sounds my heart
has never known..
warming through and through to the depths of my soul
enveloping my space
traipsing to the soles of my bare feet
draping me in ways that make me whole..
touches that can’t be replaced
fingers gently touching my face
bringing life to my eyes
seeing anew
shuttering the dark
setting fire to all I knew..
through the sunlight glow
our love grows..


Delectable

whetting my appetite
flavors unknown
piquing curiosities that are full grown..
assortment of colors
textures and feels
this array of flavors
to good to be real
creating sensations within my heart
setting my mind ablaze…
recipes of the unexpected
Unpredictable
Delectable delight..
filling my palate
slowly
deliberately
savoring the taste
awakening me to my senses
there will be no haste..

haunted
anguished
empty without you
heart beats slower
feet stuck in place
sinking lower
looking for your face..
want you so bad
hard to believe
frozen in time
in this space
looking for moments that make you mine..
I’m here to stay
won’t let you go away
though the earth swallowed all that remained
scared you’ll forget about me
don’t let me be erased
trying to embrace a world
without we
because you’ve been set free..

so far away
yet so close
never quite sure what I miss most..
all of you I suppose
wrapping my mind heart and soul
being lost in you was not a goal..
the stars aligned as if it was foretold
there would be no decision on my part to make
heart was shaken
jolted awake..
alive revived
I walk through this world..
enlightened emboldened
I open the door
leaving everything on the floor
heart is full
and yet again
you always leave me wanting more..

Unbridled..

yearning
insides churning
giving it my all
the fruit of my body
for the sins of my soul
grasping for ways to make myself whole..
reeling
spinning
dizzy in the winning..
a change has begun
sitting me still as light takes its’ run..
Thirsting for knowledge
can’t do me harm
open to learning
rewriting the wrong..
Unbound
Unchained
set loose within me
is a new song..


Unveiled..

intriguing
enthralling
captivates my mind
gripping
absorbed
lost within that time
shrouded within the walls
that have become my shrine..
there is no rhyme or rhythm
to this life no longer mine..
the veil flows so freely
inviting in its’ beauty
as he weaves himself around me
bringing me up
holding me down
disguising its’ true purpose of keeping me bound..
unveil the mystery
beguiling as it may be
being lost to yourself
is not the same as being set free..

Awakened..

The river flowing gently
cascading over rocks
harmonious sound of water
washing away loss..
the sun is shining brightly
illuminating the earth in golden hues
bringing new color
to my mind of blues..
fragrance of lilies filling the air
walking through colorful gardens
sensing you everywhere
speaks to my heart
of how much you care..
separate space
silent gaps
will not erase all that’s there..
we revel in sharing
though we cannot taste
the beauty of living
what our hearts are giving..
there is healing
when we are willing
baring heart mind and soul
to the beauty all around us
making us whole..

Etched..

chiseled with such precision
everything is in place
perfection outlining every space
your spirit within me
not a soul knew my face
love changed my gaze..
no longer held down by the haze of darkness
a presence so bright
like the stars lighting the night
you lit up my life..
revealing each part of me
loving me in spite..
no carving out this heart
no boxing me away
exactly who I am
is she who’s here to stay..
