Nothing is Something

Published July 27, 2016 by lamarrwenrich


Told my heart to begin again
a mind is a powerful thing
Let the blood flow
hear it beat
Feel the heat of life as it stirs within me
Stepping out into the light of day
All at once everything changes
How much does nothing weigh..
Almost enough to crush you
I can live without knowing
Hope without seeing
Feel without touching
I won’t hide anymore
I will not hesitate
I don’t want to
I’ll never take more than I give
I’ve learned the value of it all
Nothing is always something..                                                                  and so it begins


Let It Rain

Published July 23, 2016 by lamarrwenrich


She knows what’s at stake..
fear will not own her
she readies herself..
Bundling up for the storm that life has set before her
shuddering at the very thought of giving in..
Losing hope – the wonder of life
For without it she will cease to exist..
That will not happen
She will grow in the downpour
Standing strong
remaining curious
That thought makes her smile
It is a beautiful word
always wondering
always growing
She will remain loud
For her bones will waste away if she stays silent
So let it rain
She is rooted in
This storm will not shake her


Messy Love

Published July 18, 2016 by lamarrwenrich


She is an explosion of emotions
Gigantic messy all
the over the place emotions..
that kind of explosion that one should never have to clean up after
debris only she can understand
It scares him not
He’s determined
Relentless in his quest for her
He will help her find her way through it
Open arms waiting for the broken heart and messes that are the sum of her
He loves everything about her
Even the unexplainable
He is willing detonate with her
as long as he lands in her world


Never Alone

Published July 11, 2016 by lamarrwenrich


Curling up beside you
Drawing you close
Praying my strength into your bones
Breathing deeply for you
Wishing you whole
Willing all my love to wrap around you as tightly as my arms
That you might feel the love
That it might give you peace
Fill you with hope
Give you the fight so you may endure what’s before you
Put your hands in mine
Let me be the vine that intertwines your heart soul and mind – guarding&protecting
I will hold you up when you can no longer stand
Wear the pain you can no longer bear
Cover you in love when you no longer care
I can’t fix what I can’t fix
But I can promise you this
You will never be in this alone
For I am bringing you home


Is He Mine

Published July 10, 2016 by lamarrwenrich


Without any answers..
realizing there aren’t solutions for every situation
So caught up in him in ways I can’t explain
I look in the mirror trying to find me or is it him I see
Quite certain his face overshadows mine just like his heart eclipsed my own making my heart his home
I don’t know what I see looking back at me
A reflection I’m not so sure of anymore
so captivated by him
didn’t know any of this could be
He brushes my hair..
He holds my hand
I’m afraid..
I don’t share our moments
They are mine to cherish
So precious so sweet
Such love
So fragile..
I feel the delicate edges surrounding us
Knowing we can crumble at any time
Unsure how to protect what isn’t mine
I will fight with all my might
To guard what has become my treasured delight



Story of All

Published July 8, 2016 by lamarrwenrich


I feel your loud words
I hear your silent ones
as we tippy toe along this broken road
Cracks took you there and pushed me here
Up down & all around
supposed to set us free
But we keep sliding backwards to one another along this heartbreaking ride..
Come sit
Listen to my heart
Feel my thoughts
It’s not for naught
It isn’t nothing
There is something I’ve learned
We aren’t anything so broken that we can’t be fixed
We can live with scars
I’ve restored the cracks with a new shade of love
Live out these thoughts with me
You are the end of my everything
Listen to the words I speak as i read you the story
of All
