M.I.A.

Published January 14, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

 

 

can you see

can you feel

Just how real..

You set off a dream…

was this a scheme gone awry..

a serious or fatal accident of the heart..

Bearing the casualty of the firestorm brewing within..

I don’t wish you to be an echo of a memory I can never forget

Don’t leave me to it alone

your intentions unknown

let’s share this mishap together –

Think on, consider, conceive the world of a you and a me

feel the flames of my hopes

And the heat of my dreams

Let me singe you with love that is bursting from my seams..

It’s okay, it’s alright – I’ve got you in my sights

dupe me, trick me, just don’t lose me

for I’m M.I.A. in the games you play…

Hail to Me

Published January 7, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

Lips are moving

I can’t hear you

Heart is beating

I can’t feel you

shielded in,

Covered, protected

so well guarded..

all smiles tucked away for another day..

Never to light my face again..

Not a dimple, not a twinkle

No not even a sliver

Least the house of cards come crashing down..

Fire away &

Stand back

The ricochet will slam you hard..

The holes you feel and see are me disappearing

never to be seen again

the decay of you & me is all I see

A chapel built around the image of we..

No longer what we were once meant to be..

broken down – on my hands and knees..

Let’s set our hearts free

reach for me please..

Graffiti my Heart

Published December 28, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

 

bound in love..
decorating my mind with the details
Each letter binding the words to my heart
created with love
a mind so true..
strong and gentle
I love how you decorate my soul
A design all your own
On my heart – the most beautiful art..
Your beauty is only shadowed by your love
A treasure without words
Fierce yet tender
You are my future looking into the past
and moving ahead..
scribble, scratch or spray me – just don’t erase me..
mark me up..

Crookeds and Straights

Published December 27, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

zig zagging..

crooked or straight

Lines

created from life..

past & present

join, intersect and form us..

binding us tight

The memories

What we hold near&dear

become our truths..

what we see, what we feel, what we believe to be real

Is how we deal..

it can grow us or

ravage us

choices to be made..

It is ok and sometimes

it is right to live in the crookeds..

There will be no finding the straights..

For there to be a shadow

There has to be light

let your focus be on the bright..

Our Soundtrack

Published December 13, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

Stay lost..

Lost in our dance

never find your way out..

Let it be me

Only me you see

As you move your feet to our beat..

that rhythm of pure sweet..

Love

Love only me in the sea of hopes & dreams where nothing is like it seems..

For my sway will stay –

no matter if you’re sitting & I’m standing or

You’re running & I’m walking

The picture in your mind and the soundtrack of my heart create the perfect harmony..

and I am bending, stretching and syncing to your every move..

Lost in the rhythm & blues of our rock’n’roll..

Setting We free..

Published December 11, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

Stuck..

that battle is fierce between me, myself and I..

Is she more than me..

Multifaceted

Here there and everywhere..

or broken pieces scattered about..

am I still free to just be?

Or am I her she and we – and me is lost in between..

The thoughts rage on..

Why does one self insist it is better than the other?

It is plain and simple and beautiful and complex

Quite wonderful really..

That mind

Those thoughts..

they are everything –

so powerful and full of wonder..

Love and every good thing come from it,

filtering through my body – making me who she ought to be..

It is my mind that wakes me, shakes me, catapulting me into another orbit – capturing my attention and sends my heart soaring..

so powerful to learn that self-love is more than just a feeling..

I am grateful that while I see the rain

she sees the rainbow..

I realize how much I like her and

The innocence of hope is restored for all of me

And

I wish to be her, she, me and we..

Waking slowly..

Published December 9, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

so painful words don’t come..

so numbing

with each limb aching..

it is surreal – wake me up..

and let me never wake again..

Will I feel what’s real

Or stay in this dreamlike nightmare existence..

time alludes me

I’ve disappeared – slipping into the cracks and i am certain I’ll become dust

simply disintegrating..

then the love comes –

in numbers unexpected

in ways unimagined

and with each stitch of love

my pieces are slowly grafted back together..

Crooked, messy and uneven.. never to match up perfectly again

but the strings keep pulling tighter – and somehow they hold me together..

my insides don’t pour out- though I feel hollow..

and somehow I don’t hit bottom like dead weight-though I feel like I’ve exploded inside out..

no- somehow l only skim the surface of hell

and invisible gentle hands put the embers out before I implode into flames

And hope catches me and it

saves me..
