Light my fire…

Published July 27, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

our love is the blue hour
quietly hidden
between day and night..
sparking colors that didn’t exist
lighting up moments I can’t resist
letting go of you
would be to forfeit life..
heart is wide open
breathing in your every word..
growing – shifting -bending- flowing
love is there
always ending
with new beginnings..

Indelible

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..

Ghosting..

Published May 27, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Ghosting…

moving, breathing
raw inside
There are no words for things I hide
wondering, pondering
where did i go…
was it real
am I here
Is it all fear…
Invisible, gone
ghosting is strong
fighting through hard
it’s all wrong…
heart of steel
be gone..

Quarantined love…

one way ticket
enjoy the ride…
will we survive
as we walk this in stride..
is it my heaven or
hell that’s arrived…
what you imagine is what you will see…
it can be easy
free as the breeze
or lock you down cold
struck with disease…
hope is a dream
not always what it seems…
Detours here
Detours there
Sometimes happy
sometimes they scare…
seven years passed
like water under the bridge…
for a brief moment in time
our lives paused
giving us cause to love without laws..

tiniest second…

Published April 3, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

you filter through the pane…
sheltering in deeper and deeper
all of it in vain
no glass thick enough to keep away the pain…
hand reaches out
fingers tracing yours…
For the tiniest second you have everything to gain…
searching deep within
you no longer know your name…
each tear rolling down
sweeps you to the ground…
breaking the glass
I’ll clean up the shard… time will stand still
until the parts of your divided heart heal…

alive in the fall…

in the quiet
I’m there…
when you’re not looking
unaware…
the lull of my voice
leads you there…
Loud in your heart
pushing and pulling
leaving no choice…
what will you do
who is it that rules…
Can’t part the sea
to reach the shore…
Undertow looming
till you’re no more…
The ground racing toward you
alive in the fall…
I’m hidden in the details
Greatest secret of all…

Symphony of you..

Published February 11, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Tugging, pulling 

the music is cued..
Heart strings dangling  
waiting on you..
wound up tight 
Fill me with dread 
Or sheer delight..
It’s a choice 
your choice
which do you choose…
elaborate 
full spectrum 
You bring on the charm
Symphony in my head
sound the alarm..
it’s music 
our music 
we don’t skip a beat
Let’s waste moments together 
while we bruise in the heat..
blood vessels may rupture but what do we care 
a little discoloring 
we will not scare..
We’re classic 
complex 
symphonic at best..
our love is relentless 
when put to the test..

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..

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…
