Lego heart..

Published July 8, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

The heart breaks just a little.. the love runs deeper still

certain this chasm cannot be real..

I think I love you better now than all the years before..

Tattooed on my heart is

Intense, wonderful you..

every twist, every turn

I know you inside out..

I’ll trade my heart in exchange for yours- building each time –

a fresh new start..

my sweet imagination is what I choose

It somehow chases away the blues..

everything seems worse in black & white –

I’m gonna pick up the pieces and color them in

and when things go wrong – I’ll color again..

We’ll build and we’ll fall

but we will stand tall

This lego heart refuses to give in to it all..

Create with me – build with me a colorful home

and the pieces of our lego heart will have strong bones..

The heart breaks just a little – our colors run deep

We’re as bright as the sun

And dark as the night..

we are beauty expressed in our lover’s delight

Piece by piece

Our heart will take flight..

Believe in..

Trust..

it’s a simple word

yielding so much power..

It renders us fragile..

Misconstrued

Misunderstandings

first casualty of any relationship..

It’s a slippery slope..

so many meanings to each person..

Who defines what it is..

We all know what “trust” is supposed to mean..

But life gives it our own meaning –

shaping and forming us in ways not expected..

trust takes on a life of its’ own filling in the gaps and holes of our soul

So that we might feel whole..

We smile and carry on

talking ever so loudly with nothing to say

hoping it covers what’s hidden inside..

tethered and beaten

exhausted and worn

no more taping up all the torn

Still I will love

Still I will trust

For I am not a victim of all that life thrusts..

I’ll throw you my rope

there you’ll find hope

as we twist and turn on this slippery slope..

open your heart

Let me inside

we will be strong

for there’s nothing to hide..

Take me there..

Empty me whole

You will find me full

Brimming over with love..

Holding it tight—I am not afraid

I know who you are when I’m not looking

Better yet

Who I am when I’m with you reveals everything within and then some..

Take me there..

to that land of dreams wishes and hopes..

I want to know everything

leave nothing out..

let’s walk to this place where everything else is erased

Show me where life and love intersect

The place where our hearts connect..

I’ll never forget…

sorrow..

despair, grief

Melancholy woes,

such sadness has invaded my soul..

I cannot see through it

I’m no longer whole

I am numb

my mind has come undone..

I no longer feel

it’s all so unreal..

someone wake me

Shake me from this grief that has caused me to lose myself..

feet moving, arms hugging,

eyes wearily watching life that somehow keeps living..

sounds I don’t recognize escaping my mouth..

It is in the real – the now

So afraid of forgetting you

and somehow so afraid I’ll never be able to let you go..

Words we spoke

Plans we made..

a bonding of our hearts

words filling me with hope..

I’ll continue to dream

I’ll never let them die

I’ll release them to the sky..

realizing

I can love you and still say goodbye..

Warrior Strong

Your vile

Your cruel

You take no fool

Yet somehow you rule..

Insidious

Terrifying

You bring me to my knees..

so stealth with a wealth of harm in your outstretched arm..

Beckoning slowly,

ever so quietly

you unleash your wrath of rage devouring me up

until I can no longer rattle free this cage..

Blanketed by a stranger that has taken over my insides

as if you own me..

I won’t stay down

I’m up again

the battle is on

I won’t give in to the bile running through my skin..

You can touch me but you’ll never take my soul, my heart or my thoughts..

I’ll fight and fight

I won’t finish till I win it..

For I belong

Hope lives on

I’m warrior-strong..

Liberate yourself

It’s silent

can be deadly and all consuming

The power we give to thoughts..

The ones that rule our mind

The ones we ought to naught..

The questions,

the unknowns

and all we leave behind..

what if’s

Maybes

With all its’ lost time..

Unrequited passions

Unfulfilled dreams

Broken moments

Dashed hopes..

It is not always as it seems..

The longer you dwell on what you can’t foretell

The hotter the burn from your own hell

encumbered, entangled

crushed beneath it all

if you keep pushing

the harder you will fall..

set loose those thoughts that threaten to own you

Wearing you out

until you don’t know you..

You are more than the sum of your thoughts..

I’ll remain..

Published April 29, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

Keeping it safely between the lines

you remain blind..

The walls of your mind so unkind..

shouting, yelling – such a grind

you’re heavy, you’re weary

shaking on unstable ground..

no more running

no more hiding

No more sliding into despair..

Your eyes show the strength of how much you care..

break down the walls

open those eyes – let me inside

What did I learn through your walk of pain..

to love us new all over again..

To love us through & through

I’ll never quit growing,

I’ll never quit showing

how much more I have to pour into your heart..

And there I’ll remain, until you’re ready to start..
