Best of me…

Published August 16, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

I want to drink the air

Live in the sunset

taste the water

emerge from it new

washed clean from all I’ve seen..

layer after layer I shed my skin

Looking for the freedom of where to begin

Only to find the same eyes pulling me back again..

What does it matter that I shed the outside gone-

my insides whirl round and round owning me strong..

I could choose to give in to all of my sins

Or reach out my hand to the one I know so well –

The best of me..

There you are standing tall

I exist because you chose to fall

Thank you for loving me through it all

Play Me..

Published August 12, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

our melody hit every note

fine tuning its’ way for the perfect pitch that became you & I..

you sing through me

Vibrating my heart strings

until they hum a love so sweet

I hear it in my heartbeat

traipsing through my veins

wafting throughout my being

humming your way to my heart until it became our home

our love is like a soldier

standing strong

Loyal to us – it rights all wrongs

I learned a love song

my heart will never be empty

for your melody always plays softly throughout me..

My soul to keep..

Your mind

my thoughts

It mattered not..

the essence of you and i weaved a soul of love unknown..

the joy boundless

sealing us tight..

It won’t matter what is written or the

words spoken out loud but never given..

we lived it freely

We lived it real

until time stood still..

I couldn’t stay, I can’t pretend

My heart went silent..

I lost my way when I couldn’t feel the beating of my mainstay..

So now I lay me down to sleep

for my soul needs yours in order to keep..

I hope they know

I pray they see

Though life’s unfair

we’ll find our way in every sphere..

Breath of my breath

Breath upon my bones

Your heart is my home

I don’t walk alone..

we meld into each other

forming a love with a shape of its’ own..

like the beauty created by the drippings of candle wax..

each time it’s lit up, we set the sky on fire

absorbed into a sphere of our own..

I reopen you time and again..

caught up in our space i come undone

Blinded as if I’m touched by the sun..

colors so vibrant – woven tightly as one

Like a rainbow that has only just begun..

You color my heart

You warm my soul

feeling every shade you’ve splashed from the start

my heart is on fire

my soul is aflame

Forever and ever it will paint your name..

Lego heart..

The heart breaks just a little.. the love runs deeper still

certain this chasm cannot be real..

I think I love you better now than all the years before..

Tattooed on my heart is

Intense, wonderful you..

every twist, every turn

I know you inside out..

I’ll trade my heart in exchange for yours- building each time –

a fresh new start..

my sweet imagination is what I choose

It somehow chases away the blues..

everything seems worse in black & white –

I’m gonna pick up the pieces and color them in

and when things go wrong – I’ll color again..

We’ll build and we’ll fall

but we will stand tall

This lego heart refuses to give in to it all..

Create with me – build with me a colorful home

and the pieces of our lego heart will have strong bones..

The heart breaks just a little – our colors run deep

We’re as bright as the sun

And dark as the night..

we are beauty expressed in our lover’s delight

Piece by piece

Our heart will take flight..

Stepping Stones

Published June 18, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

 

Stepping stones

to where we’ve been
To all we are
To all we aren’t
To where we’ll be
And all we’ll see..
For life keeps going
and we’ll keep growing
as each step holds us up through the badder and the worse; pushing us on to the better and the good..
Unsaid words sung in my heart
Remind me of our once upon another time when I made you mine..
Write me something beautiful was all I could say..
Because I was touched right from the start —
your markings are etched on my heart..
so let’s keep stepping on each stone that’s raised
never losing sight
even in the haze..
moving on toward that special goal where the love of two makes us whole..

Believe in..

Trust..

it’s a simple word

yielding so much power..

It renders us fragile..

Misconstrued

Misunderstandings

first casualty of any relationship..

It’s a slippery slope..

so many meanings to each person..

Who defines what it is..

We all know what “trust” is supposed to mean..

But life gives it our own meaning –

shaping and forming us in ways not expected..

trust takes on a life of its’ own filling in the gaps and holes of our soul

So that we might feel whole..

We smile and carry on

talking ever so loudly with nothing to say

hoping it covers what’s hidden inside..

tethered and beaten

exhausted and worn

no more taping up all the torn

Still I will love

Still I will trust

For I am not a victim of all that life thrusts..

I’ll throw you my rope

there you’ll find hope

as we twist and turn on this slippery slope..

open your heart

Let me inside

we will be strong

for there’s nothing to hide..
