waking you

Published January 26, 2023 by lamarrwenrich



anger ignites
flaming ugly to life
bringing with it strife..
snuff it out
burn it whole
there’s more to life than this madness
change up your goals..
dawning of new possibilities
imaginations taking you to novel places
new words begin to fill the spaces
rich and clear and true..
take hold of my hand
make a stand
let those dreams keep waking you
shaking you to new realms..
walk through the doors of my mind..
unwind into the love that can so easily bind
burying the white noise that owns your mind
never lose the meaning of all that is gleaming from within..




Deaths’ sting..

Published January 11, 2023 by lamarrwenrich


so painful it’s dangerous
the wound is poison
absorbing my heart..
lingering on
black clouds shadowing me
Insidious hands boxing me in
falling apart
broken
truths that shatter my heart..
bruised skin
battered mind
you won’t win
standing at the edge of the abyss
it’s you I miss..
Bittersweet
I feel you
I hear you
I taste you..
starting to live again
there you are
in the middle of the day
in the middle of the night
letting me know it’ll be alright..
no more sorrow
no regrets
letting go
death has lost its’ sting
my heart will sing..

loving hard..

Published January 8, 2023 by lamarrwenrich



making these moments last
no past to break the mood
no future to steal it away..
slowly giving in
gently learning to breathe again
raining down on me
washed anew..
you came along
like a song
singing a tune
that woke me from slumber..
though you were gone
by the end of the song
my heart was sparked
wrapping around the melodic words that linger on..
traces of you cover my heart
sending me to new places
no longer afraid to love hard..

Reflections..

Published January 4, 2023 by lamarrwenrich


searching
yearning
heart brimming
empty
full
Is there a rule..
knowing so much
revealing so little..
baffled
I see my reflection and beyond -
the hope
the loneliness
and the gift of love..
each carrying a life sentence of its’ own..
distinct
blinding
leading us on
time alluding us before we know it’s gone..
we get small unaware
the shadow of life covers us all
the tunnel will bury us
Or we can stand tall
the draw is the light
at the end of the night..


Artistry of you..

Published January 2, 2023 by lamarrwenrich


creatively unleashing my inner being
skillfully honing the moments you’re owning
the ability to create a tune in me that didn’t exist
you are my songbird..
a melody unique to my heartbeat
lost in our song
swaying to the unknown..
don’t say a word
our silence is golden
shaping my every thought
my mind is wrought with the possibilities loving you brings..
my heart singing effortlessly
Elaborately embellished by the beauty you bring..

Skin..

Published December 31, 2022 by lamarrwenrich



binding
unchanging
as natural as can be
covering outer layers
this hide is what I need..
holding
molding
loving me free..
wrapping me tight
tough yet flexible
your love - my delight..
protective
my warrior
you are my might..
no barriers between us
heart to heart we connect
skin to skin
we have grown
flesh to flesh
mine to behold
no other skin I’d rather know..

sum of its’ parts..

every crevice
stained with love
open vulnerable
reveling in our space..
creating and filling gaps
we’re revealing
weaving together
the tiniest of loosened threads
least they come undone..
unwilling to unravel
any part of what’s begun..
bigger than the sum of its’ parts
moments making us whole
sharing hearts
sealing the fabric of time
that has made you mine..

Tilted..

Published December 14, 2022 by lamarrwenrich



slipping, sliding
into the mess it’s become..
mental, emotional
confusion at best
a crime to my being
you know the rest
lunging at your core
it’s mine to score..
giving up rights
to keep you in sight..
eyesight is failing
can’t see straight anymore
a heart is left wailing..
who could have guessed
love clutches hate
leaving the loudest quiet in
its’ wake..
Tilted
sloping
heart left groping..

Nicotine..

A habit
unaware or by choice..
My habit
chosen
hear my voice..
slow burning within
churning heart mind and soul into one..
addictive
my stimulant
keeping me high..
my depressant
for all the unknown whys..
love induced high
absorbing into my bloodstream
heart rate rising
chaos on the horizon..
you are all good feelings
all at once
adrenaline spiked..
my nightshade
cutting through me
like a sharp edged blade..
