Graffiti my Heart

Published December 28, 2017 by lamarrwenrich


bound in love..
decorating my mind with the details
Each letter binding the words to my heart
created with love
a mind so true..
strong and gentle
I love how you decorate my soul
A design all your own
On my heart – the most beautiful art..
Your beauty is only shadowed by your love
A treasure without words
Fierce yet tender
You are my future looking into the past
and moving ahead..
scribble, scratch or spray me – just don’t erase me..
mark me up..



Crookeds and Straights

Published December 27, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

zig zagging..

crooked or straight


created from life..

past & present

join, intersect and form us..

binding us tight

The memories

What we hold near&dear

become our truths..

what we see, what we feel, what we believe to be real

Is how we deal..

it can grow us or

ravage us

choices to be made..

It is ok and sometimes

it is right to live in the crookeds..

There will be no finding the straights..

For there to be a shadow

There has to be light

let your focus be on the bright..

Our Soundtrack

Published December 13, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

Stay lost..

Lost in our dance

never find your way out..

Let it be me

Only me you see

As you move your feet to our beat..

that rhythm of pure sweet..


Love only me in the sea of hopes & dreams where nothing is like it seems..

For my sway will stay –

no matter if you’re sitting & I’m standing or

You’re running & I’m walking

The picture in your mind and the soundtrack of my heart create the perfect harmony..

and I am bending, stretching and syncing to your every move..

Lost in the rhythm & blues of our rock’n’roll..

Setting We free..

Published December 11, 2017 by lamarrwenrich


that battle is fierce between me, myself and I..

Is she more than me..


Here there and everywhere..

or broken pieces scattered about..

am I still free to just be?

Or am I her she and we – and me is lost in between..

The thoughts rage on..

Why does one self insist it is better than the other?

It is plain and simple and beautiful and complex

Quite wonderful really..

That mind

Those thoughts..

they are everything –

so powerful and full of wonder..

Love and every good thing come from it,

filtering through my body – making me who she ought to be..

It is my mind that wakes me, shakes me, catapulting me into another orbit – capturing my attention and sends my heart soaring..

so powerful to learn that self-love is more than just a feeling..

I am grateful that while I see the rain

she sees the rainbow..

I realize how much I like her and

The innocence of hope is restored for all of me


I wish to be her, she, me and we..

Waking slowly..

Published December 9, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

so painful words don’t come..

so numbing

with each limb aching..

it is surreal – wake me up..

and let me never wake again..

Will I feel what’s real

Or stay in this dreamlike nightmare existence..

time alludes me

I’ve disappeared – slipping into the cracks and i am certain I’ll become dust

simply disintegrating..

then the love comes –

in numbers unexpected

in ways unimagined

and with each stitch of love

my pieces are slowly grafted back together..

Crooked, messy and uneven.. never to match up perfectly again

but the strings keep pulling tighter – and somehow they hold me together..

my insides don’t pour out- though I feel hollow..

and somehow I don’t hit bottom like dead weight-though I feel like I’ve exploded inside out..

no- somehow l only skim the surface of hell

and invisible gentle hands put the embers out before I implode into flames

And hope catches me and it

saves me..

What a delightful sound

It is beautiful to my heart..

i love the beat of yours..

thrumming a melody no one can hear..

the ins & outs of your innocent mind wow me

It’s so wildly different

A unique piece of art that makes up you

May no one change a thing about you

May you never fall victim to that

Though some may find you monotonous and

Some may find you ever-changing

just know your kind of perfection is hard to find..

Rare beautiful hope..

Untouched you shall remain –

continue on in your own enchanting, rhythmic hum..

It is a chant no one can compare..

Grabbing tight the sweet moments

sealing them in..

searing it into my heart

my mind & soul..

for surely they will come&go

Love has taught me so..

The flavor of life is what I choose to drink in – seeping through my pores to the very core of my being..

Let the aroma tantalize my senses

balmy, soothing, calming to my mind

Drench me in the fragrance of it..

Though my heart is transparent – paper like in its’ love-

I am not afraid..

Unaffected, untouched, immune

for i am locked into the eclectic savory taste of life..
