Days of old..

Published September 24, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

anticipation is

running strong

Thoughts and memories of days long gone..

nerves and excitement fill the air

while some walk around to shy too share

others are living, walking vibrant stories

waiting to unfold with friends of old..

Father Time we can’t rewind — yet the past is vibrant in their minds..

we see it dancing in their eyes – the joy spills over and for a time

past and present intertwine..

It’s good, it’s right

their hearts delight and they let themselves get lost to the magic of the night..

And the days of old become moments of gold..

broken bones

Published September 19, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

Raining in my heart

A cleansing of the old..

Renewing of a start

A beacon of hope has begun exactly where I stand..

it’s not in the big things

Nor the mountain tops high..

It’s the steady and

The slow in the things we don’t know..

the moments in between

The quiet unseen..

where the bones are scattered

The feet are crushed

And all the craziness is silenced and hushed..

The bones come together as the rain gently flows..

reshaping and transforming hope as it grows

I welcome the broken,

the scars and the pain-

my heart keeps growing

it’s never in vain..

till death do us part..

Te Amo..

Grind me up

there we are

the aroma of love permeating the air..

Crushing, crumbled

my soul is bare..

Fuego..

mixed in till there is not one degree of separation between you & me..

Te quiero..

no escaping the fate of us

we are one..

Will it become our undoing

Or are we already undone..

a love that makes many want to run

settles me still..

Sabotaged my heart to the point of no return..

tecum usque ad mortem..

I will not set you free

I savor the flavor of we..

Shadow dance..

I inherited your shadow..

The over lay

Of you was all I knew..

A reflected image of your love shone through

guiding the way..

each footstep pushing me on

making me strong

The hurried ones, the slow ones, the skipping ones, the stalled ones..

a shadow of love that covered me well..

I was brave enough to follow along

l will shadow dance with you into obscurity..

You are the hand that holds the pen to that far away land

our hearts dictating the plans..

I’m yesterday..

The darkness returns

cocooning me in its’ web of warmth and loneliness..

bringing you back

and all we knew

All we know of our highs and lows..

we’ve been kissed by the rain as it washed away our pain

We endured the fire as it branded our hearts..

another place

Another time

our love would have never been erased..

my arms hold on to the empty space

so hard to hold on to what’s gone

Harder to let it go..

I am yesterday

It is tomorrow..

Closing my eyes

I’ll feel it one more time

as I welcome in the dawn..

Only human..

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I welcome it in

desperate for rest

I run till i fall in search of it all..

The charm of the quiet

I’m under its’ spell

I scream till I yell

hungry for anyone to look at me and tell..

I may be alone

as my grasp gives way to the icy fingers on their own

no one there to warm my hand..

It’s ok – I understand..

The only way outward is inward

Don’t think me coward

for there isn’t a lie I’d rather know than the truth..

Sweet death..

stretched so tight I no longer feel..

the impenetrable wall

The divide growing

as our hearts are sowing new paths..

Opposition to one another

Fighting for space in the canvas of your heart..

Until I say no more

no more to saying yes

Freeing myself to choose..

Only when I’m free

Can i keep the monsters at bay

The ones I can’t see that choke the air out of me..

I knew this day might come

though I knew you were my truth..

there’s no comfort in waiting for the last beat of our hearts

Let it die before that starts..

But mostly

I need you to look out and see

you will always be a part of me..
