Deadly Love

Published July 22, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

she hears sounds
Sees the lips moving..
meaningless words
The praises bestowed upon her full of empty air
Choking her silent until she couldn't care
muting her with expectations
silencing her with his cold indifference
He shut her down by dismissing her thoughts
Unaware that she was disappearing into the words..
she heard & felt all the judgement until she wore it like her skin
buried underneath
She became invisible..
No one saw the destruction she had become
All was not well within the walls of her home
Nothing would revive the corpse of her soul
he loved her cruelly until she was no more

Escape Artist..

The stillness surrounds her

It's all familiar as her eyes open 

bringing life to her mind

Her heart hearing the words before they escape his lips..

everything has changed everything remains the same..

all of life's moments filtering through her as she hungrily laps it up 

absorbing every drop 

Ravenous for change 

Clinging to hope 

Believing every moment has its' reason and each step a purpose.. 

the very precipice she teeters at determining whether she flees or stays.. 

Desperate to settle 

anxious for her heart to breathe 

She simply chooses to believe

As if it will all fall into place 

Knowing the highest cliff she could jump from

Is trust 

there's no reason to run anymore 

leaving behind the chains that strangled her heart 

and the handcuffs that bound her tight 

the ropes slip off her feet  

and the old becomes new 

She is confined no more…

Quiet Roar..

jumbling me to my core 

not sure how it started 

when it began

or where it will end

was there a hello

Is there a goodbye  

is it from within 

Where does it go..

are you just a dream 

I have direction no more 

I’m laying flat out on the floor 

I’m going to love you a little bit more 

Until i hear that quiet roar 

Not Today..

Everything is spinning 

all meshed together 

Good slipping away,

 bad gaining power,

happy & sad 

all bleeding as one 

Threatening to bury us in its’ mess

we are fading in&out..

Who will break the fall

for we will not shatter..

Though like broken sticks and broken stones turn to dust, so will our bones 

we are still standing 

not blowing in the wind yet

Not today..

Hold me tight 

we will walk & fall united 

Together as one 

You’re my hero 

I’m your weakness 

We are the best of it all

Made from love 

Here’s to you & me

and our hearts’ content…
