Beauty Scars

Published March 6, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

the deepest wounds

are my dearest friends

they follow me through till the end..

Teaching me, showing me, guiding me on..

With each gash

I learn me strong

cherishing the wrongs, the hurts, the pain

All of life is mine to gain..

I may be wiser, maybe I’m not

but I’m open to live..

pliable, limber

wanting to give

twisting and turning with all there is..

I’ve soaked it all up

abundant and full..

Life slips in

carves us to win..

the scars are my beauty

time will tell

I wear them well..

walk with me

talk with me

hold my hand

the privilege is yours to

know where I stand..

Color my world..

I see you in black and white

Your soul clear as day..

You light up my world in colors bright..

Closer than two hearts can tell

Crazy beautiful is our hell

We’re fire, we’re ice

we’re anything but nice,

yet we don’t think twice about rolling the dice..

we may be dark but burn bright with light

reflecting all the rays of the sunlight

a black and white delight..

Two faces..

You look

You wonder

you question

you guess

Judging until you’re completely undressed

heaped on

the floor in a shredded mess..

I’m her, I’m she, I’m them, I’m we

and the loss of me is the new conquest..

I am now two

split through and through

No longer true to me or you

I’m buried alive

nowhere to hide..

gotta dig deep to find my feet

rolling back the ignorance

walking in bliss

Looking for what I somehow missed

Drawing back my spirit

bringing back my mind

two souls rejoined

until we are one

No longer afraid of all that’s begun..

Untamed…

Steady as we go

settling me so

gently we flow

rhythmically letting go..

the winds take a change

chaos rules the day and we blow every which way..

nothing stays

Nothing remains

to what avail

What have we gained..

unexplainable, unchangeable,

incredible we..

it’s you, it’s me

It’s what we see

when lost at sea..

undeniably real

sets us still..

ours moments untamed

we are beautiful

we are no name..

Smile within..

I found a smile within, sweet season

coming round again..

sometimes you win

sometimes you lose

sometimes the blues settle in..

make a choice

choose..

It’s all been said

it’s all been done

both feet forward until

I’ve won..

In my quiet unbound

I shall remain footloose

While I watch life go round and round

my smile has been found..

Regretful delight..

Bittersweet you..

painful and pleasant regretful delight..

your aroma soothes my soul

such a pitiful sight..

my heart skips a beat with the aftertaste sweet..

in my haste

I failed to see

the deceit,

the greed,

and the pretense of your need..

I bow out with grace

no hate on my face

leave me be I plead

left alone

to wallow in disgrace..

I harbor no ill will..

for still – be as it may

I will display

Only the good..

my home full of memories

a mixture of sad with a heart full of glad..

an ending that must come – though it leaves me undone..

Undaunted..

Hands down

Fists unwound

Heart open

to the sound

You will love what couldn’t be found..

No sense in fighting it –

instead, delight in it..

you’re richer because of it

Stronger in the midst of it..

Your senses thrive on it..

You’ll come to understand things not known

The unknown value unfolds

seeing the imperfect perfectly bold..
