changing mirrors..

Published March 28, 2023 by lamarrwenrich

your soul is weary
depleted of life
the view obscured by
the commotion inside..
a mind so tender
fragments fly
as its’ grasping and winding through space and time
tugging, pulling, holding on tight
unable to let go of all that was left behind..
love is powerful
it can overcome the moments you think will leave you undone..
the time has come
just let go
you are worthy and golden
let’s take it slow
I see you for who you are
in the here and now..
don’t fear the shadows
change up your mirrors
keep looking through all your fears..
wrath - angry and strong -
once violated your love..
it’s powerless - losing its’ lust
becoming dust..
no longer alive in you
it’s been isolated, annihilated
the venom that once traipsed through your blood..
Reflections of changes
catapulting you upright
capsizing your heart
this restless soul is ready to be whole..

looking out
what remains
feeling like it’s all in vain..
misty, unclear covered in haze
my fingers tracing blindly
as my glazed eyes strain
looking searching
fixing my gaze..
out beyond the glare
are dreams i want to share
do I dare stand up
opening myself bare..
hoping, wishing, believing
someone will be there..
can’t sit still any longer
as the tears roll down my face
I’ll embrace this new space
allowing the moments to absorb
my fears..
barriers must fall
giving way to a new day
I’m yielding, willing to give it my all..
Only then I can belong to me
Completely free
Glass breaking
I am waking..

nuclear..

there’s beauty in explosions
as the remnants spiral about
lighting up glimpses of us in the fallout..
my heart hits the ground
and
the energy that bound us
is out of this realm..
Unique - all its’ own
a life force unknown..
it won’t be contained
once let out
nothing remains..
a love is spiritually awakened
nuclear in its’ quest
causing such unrest..
radioactive ashes cascading about
setting my heart ablaze..
the intensity inflecting changes that
will follow me from hours to years..
this outburst sends shock waves
pulsating against my skin
with a magnitude that sears and shapes the core of my soul..




War with me..

Published March 6, 2023 by lamarrwenrich



fight big
battle strong
let’s fix the wrongs that don’t belong
two battleships that always miss
the fear of letting go what we know..
War with me
light or darkness let’s not fear
let’s be brave
walking it through
knowing we’re near..
we only lose
when we choose to hold on
step into the now
leave the past in your wake..
I’ll be your beacon
lighting you bright
let’s practice truth
no distractions pulling our roots..
solid ground is where we’ll be found
reason with me
come as you are
a new season is coming
washing us clean..
The dirty
the broken
all will be gone
the battle is over
the war is won..

land-marked..

shaping history
never ending
constantly shifting..
highs and lows
as it ebbs and flows
the highest honor
I’ll ever know..
challenged, questioned
admired, revered
loved, hated
I strap on my gear
ready to adhere
to the battles
only my heart could know..
I rise and I fall
with each breath i take..
reaching out
I take a stand
hands raised high
applauding
the supreme court of parenting -
the hardest job in all the land..

grounded..

let me land you
ground you
standing you tall..
the rain can’t drown you
the fire won’t burn you
stop running from it all
rid yourself of skin that holds you in
shedding yourself free
descend slowly into this love that envelops you
least we cease to be..
hear my heart sing
the words that bring you back
tears that fall away
I’ll catch them all..
touching down
you’ll feel the sounds of a heart
grounded and true..

your love
teaches me much i never knew
as I ingest you
not with my mouth but with my heart
intimacy grants us a new start..
I make sense
through the lens of your heart
In my soul you have a face
a name
there is no shame..
we keep colliding
sliding away
will we learn
will we reconcile..
whisper to my pleasures
speak to my heart
covering my pain
I linger in the love of you
there is much to gain..
etched in my mind
is the wonder of you
the sum of my memories
making us new..

Tender and tattered..

indelibly marked
bruised through to the bones
let it scar you beautifully
helping you grow
teaching and changing
you aren’t alone..
wash away darkness
marking you new..
let my fingers paint a picture
let me run them over you
making ugly beautiful
in ways we could know..
let’s fall into the sun
shine brighter than ever before
letting the warmth soothe the tattered parts of your soul
as you lay your heart upon
promises that can make you whole..
