like heroin..

Published October 14, 2021 by lamarrwenrich






the walls kept moving
in so tight
my feet kicking and shoving
looking for light
till I was wrung out
strung out
nowhere to go..
the bright dimmed
realizing there was no win
I gave in..
my time got small
haunted by the past
searching for things that couldn’t last..
letting go to the innocence i once knew
I dare my soul not to break
compulsive and chronic
I’ll attach it to hope..
desires and daydreams
pull me upstream
taking me to that place between sleep and awake..
mind is lit up
addictions renewed
love is my anchor
I’ll no longer hate..



between the moments…

Published May 15, 2021 by lamarrwenrich



between the moments of living and dying
there are moments divine
We are many kinds of beautiful..
watching the sun set one last time
the beauty in the darkness
the hope in the empty
And the warmth in the coldness of goodbyes..
There is a morning after
We won’t have to search anymore..
fascinated how we can become undone
yet remain as one..

Tricks of time..

It marches on
passage of time
clutching on to everyone..
you think you’ve won
mastering the moments of it all
catching you off guard -
you slowly fall..
friend or foe
Who’s to know
it gives as much as it takes..
it’s a gift
Let’s not hate nor escape
we aren’t glass
we won’t break
let’s celebrate each moment
we awake...
It takes us up
It takes us down
often times left spinning round..
the tick is tocking
the beauty of life talking
waiting to share its’ moments of love..
Don’t despair
be the rare one who knows
what he’s won..
impossible to hold
it disintegrates into gold..
time is always new
the ticking has just begun..


Blossoming..

Blossoming...




Love me
just the way i am..
sunshine and tears
quite the mess
but not less than you hoped
or more than you dare..


I’ll quiet your fears
irrational tears
giving way to the atmosphere..
taking pieces that remain
ghost or not
we remain the same..


accepting our alien parts
of the hearts
abundant, flourishing
in ways to foretell..
we’ll learn love anew
gradually growing
the most beautiful bloom..

Indelible

Published July 2, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

the ink has dried
pages worn
edges weathered
so forlorn..
Wrapped your love around me like a chain
couldn’t withstand the hurricane..
Words indelible
quieting my heart..
unspoken things
between the lines
staining my soul..
with each moment they fade
making me whole..
closing the book
we are no more
between the beats of my heart
forever more..

Rooted..

solid strong our house won’t fall… bones are good changing with time like petrified wood… banged around chips hit the ground… melodic pain it’s worth the gain… we scatter but won’t shatter into pieces we don’t know… we built us well… time will tell

Scorched

searing 
burning
lighting my core 

you cut
twisting, turning 
leaving no spot..
the screaming in my soul it can’t be whole..
I want to soar 
touch the sky
feel the sun 
till I’m high..
in my eyes you’d see the
sunshine till it made you cry..
if your wanderlust settled 
you’d stay awhile..
A tale we could tell 
you’d know me well..

the rain came..

you chose to stay 
chasing the sun until my heart you won
clearing the melancholy 
sharing the joy..
the unknown looming 
my eyes watching 
pondering the beauty you bring to my heart..
In the losses 
the dark spaces 
you continued to give..
the rain came 
each drop washing away the old..
you didn’t run
turning us around 
we’ve begun…

Perfected chaos

Published June 2, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

The silent moments when the unknown roars

unbearable is the pain

certain nothings gained..

silently walk with me

enter the night

let’s quiet the storm

embrace the space between us that keeps me warm..

It’s hard to find the sun

in all that’s begun

Chaos and perfection

gnaw at my charred soul

slow it down and face it

let it make me whole..

There is always beauty in the ugly truth

‘wherever you go

there you are’

More than the sum of all you see..

The soundlessness has banished the critics that harness my soul..

scars will bleed

the disease of me will no longer be..

the fears are silenced into the atmosphere..

Reverie

Published May 22, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

lost in ones delight

Turn down the noise

Turn down the light

Take me back to the good ole days..

Where ways made sense

A daydream wasn’t a trance

Your vision had reason-not just a hallucination..

an impractical idea

A fanciful thought

Was what one sought..

take me to the past

where the good things last

paint me a picture of long ago

days of yore once more..
