Skin..

Published December 31, 2022 by lamarrwenrich



binding
unchanging
as natural as can be
covering outer layers
this hide is what I need..
holding
molding
loving me free..
wrapping me tight
tough yet flexible
your love - my delight..
protective
my warrior
you are my might..
no barriers between us
heart to heart we connect
skin to skin
we have grown
flesh to flesh
mine to behold
no other skin I’d rather know..

author of my story

endless possibilities
swirling through my head
words are storming
shaping and forming
new beginnings..
choosing
picking
which words are sticking..
chapter after chapter
I am renewed
not afraid
feeling brave
Turn the page
feel the rage
slip slip slipping away..
loving words are here to stay
what a story in all its’ glory
Binding
holding meant to last
never a victim of ones’ past..


My tomb..

mixed in the madness
made a perfect mess
Odorless
Tasteless
who could have guessed..
blinded happily I couldn’t taste death..
following your footsteps
thought I passed the test..
the sun was shining brightly
calling me through and through
yet the dark cold was coming
somehow I never knew..
falling deeper and deeper
despair has had its’ way
I do not fear the reaper
I know he’s here to stay..
it’s life that cuts like a knife
With all its’ strife..
I’ll see again
feel again
reveling as I’m whole
death does not separate
united is my goal..

truest love
unseen
weaves its’ way through ones’ mind
piercing heart and soul
a touch transcending time..
opening doors to unknown moments
finding our way to unknown places
a love that exists in space
beautiful
memorable
so unique
it needs no face..

reckless..

surrender to the sweetness
covered in the goodness
Give yourself to me
In the beauty of love..
let’s fly above
letting go of all we know
hearts syncing
spirits singing
a melody that fills the soul..
we are rare
lets care with reckless abandon
all restraints have been let loose
set us free
It’s what we choose..



Catch my disease..

Published February 12, 2022 by lamarrwenrich




Rain..
pure, gentle, pelting,
cascading from the sky
covering the earth with rebirth..
cleansing the hurt
drowning out pain
my heart gains insight
yet scars remain
cut so deep
diseased with change..

made you a habit
so it began
a particular quality
hard to win..
an involuntary addiction
I end where you begin..

incurable malady -
there is no win
uproot our hearts
and wash them clean..
catch my disease
before we cease..


In the light..

Cluttered
Buried
lost in the shuffle
deeper & deeper
into the shadows you fall…
confusion abounds
all your madness
your sadness
rallying around…
don’t fear the inevitable
don’t fear the dark
your secrets and scars
they are who you are…
soul wrenching and beautiful
you’re never alone
your worth is revealed
your essence renewed…
hold those moments closely
as you’re opened up wide…
Inescapable shadows
define us all
stay in the light
so they shine bright…
shed the skin
the baggage you’re in
as pure beauty is discovered
watch your shadow rise
to an inevitable end..







Only just begun..

moments are fleeting
my heart is bleeding 
feels incomplete..
was it enough
did I reach you 
teach you 
as I become a mime with time..
does your heart know what mine has sown 
from the moment you began..
words collapse on my tongue as I become undone 
in awe of the human you have become..
independent

confident
you wear it well..
breaking free 
while I hold so
tight
reigning you in with my might..
my heart overflows with stories untold..
beaming with pride 
I’ll let your hopes dance
not fearing the past that cannot last..

Give way…

Lamenting

mourning

hurting inside..

burying you deep

as if it’s something to hide..

Grieving is love that’s exploded inside..

fragments remain

keeping you sane

Just enough to shoulder the blame..

Shadow boxing here

Shadow boxing there

It’s worn you down

leveling you to the ground..

Stop fighting yourself

don’t do it alone

step into new space as you roam..

What is dead may never die

let it tear through the shadows of your sky..

May it thunder through to the silence of your heart..

hear the sounds of freedom as darkness gives way to light..

let the mourning change with the morning bright..

your mind will rewind

to promises of old

reliving stories you’ve been told

as it fills your soul

it will make you whole..

lose to win..

love is a losing game

Defeat..

in ways that make you as it breaks you..

give in to the pain

It fills you with joy

with strength

So much to gain..

Shadows of your heart

Hit you in the darkest part

A noose around your neck

that grip will rip

till you feel no more..

trust it – walk through that door..

If I was a sculptor

I’d mold me into you

you into me

We’d be the best we could be

losing while we win to the best moments unknown

getting lost in the game with no name..
