Truth in the lies..

Published June 30, 2022 by lamarrwenrich

your words are big
they reach the sky
causing me to question why..

I taste the moment
inhaling the lies
grasping the broken in your eyes..

holding on just the same
your love has become my name
our fractured pieces have become unique mosaics
Tender and kind
you absorb my mind
Not in a place to be found
as we go round and round..

colliding with my heart
a beginning of a start
there’s unrest
much chatter
for a heart that is scattered..

is it truth
Is it real
deceit for the unwise..
always to miss what we know
in this disguise of lies..

Parallel lines..

blurring the lines
sweeter than wine
love & friendship
laughing crying..
we’re a beautiful rhyme
going up
slamming down
good bad
happy sad
until we become one..
our hearts beating out loud
bleeding for you & I
affection weaving itself into every fiber of our being..
tangled knots of love we hold tight
walk into my eyes
for a love we’ve never known right…
crossing space & time..
an ocean in my body
a river in my soul
not a quiet idea
let it make me whole..

in the fabric..

dress me up in your arms
beguile me by your charms
Adorned by your love
details are in the fabric of my heart..
scars take on a new shade as
they fade
giving way to secrets revealed by the whisper of your name..
death has no fangs
I finally understand
it smiled at me
even with the pang..
Etched on my heart
dreams & memories become one..

Heaven & hell..

Published March 20, 2022 by lamarrwenrich

we’re in it already
heaven & hell
battling our soul..
Bleed on me
I’ll drink it in
cover me softly with your wind
bury me deeply
deep within
stretch it long
let it soar
feel the pain
let it roar..
stop the bleeding
jump it back
shake it straight
change our path..
perfected through love
made to last
intrigue holds the heart
God is the hand that bands us back
covering the land
so we may stand..

Catch my disease..

Published February 12, 2022 by lamarrwenrich

pure, gentle, pelting,
cascading from the sky
covering the earth with rebirth..
cleansing the hurt
drowning out pain
my heart gains insight
yet scars remain
cut so deep
diseased with change..

made you a habit
so it began
a particular quality
hard to win..
an involuntary addiction
I end where you begin..

incurable malady -
there is no win
uproot our hearts
and wash them clean..
catch my disease
before we cease..

It’s madness kindness
Holding us tight
How did we get there
have we arrived
is this the joy
is this the fun…
I see your hand in the fabric
of all that’s begun..
love like a shepherd
not steering us wrong
Learning to listen
hearing you strong…
pain is deceiving
eclipsing the light
never lose focus
continue the fight..

far greater than love
Surpassing what one understands
an explosion of two souls crashing
The intrigue of uninhibited love
laid bare..
Sliced open
left to bleed
Fulfilling every need..
it’s pure
translucently clear
nothing left to fear..
passing from dark into the light
we are a reflection of beauty
of everything right..
a perspective to each
and to each their own
love has its’ way
it’s a fools delight..

it begins
an explosion of life
the eyes of your heart opened wide..
the smiles, the touch, the laughter heard from afar
All sweet reminders to be grateful where you are..
Nothing is promised
anything given - a gift to be treasured..
measuring life’s worth with the love that we share..
don’t lose sight in the fight battling the day
each breath we take guiding the way…
delight in the beauty of the moments you’re in
keeping us aware that life and love should be treated as rare..
unique wonderful beautiful you
soak in life’s moments
they’re always anew..

Runs deep..

Published November 30, 2021 by lamarrwenrich
the river runs deep..
mysterious life it leads
don’t know how it’ll go
flowing with its’ lows
rising with its’ highs
we’ll twist & turn taking it slow
dousing out the fires when we lose

My home
My heart
My crypto-night

thoughts of you..
impossible to deal
as you steal the core of me
can’t reel in the anticipation
of all you are..

fruition of love as the water flows
Between you and me
with each wave we grow
In ways only we know..

like heroin..

the walls kept moving
in so tight
my feet kicking and shoving
looking for light
till I was wrung out
strung out
nowhere to go..
the bright dimmed
realizing there was no win
I gave in..
my time got small
haunted by the past
searching for things that couldn’t last..
letting go to the innocence i once knew
I dare my soul not to break
compulsive and chronic
I’ll attach it to hope..
desires and daydreams
pull me upstream
taking me to that place between sleep and awake..
mind is lit up
addictions renewed
love is my anchor
I’ll no longer hate..
