Hazy smoke danced around her

as if to grab her attention..

as it slowly faded into the air

She looked around wishing to care..

The sun-kissed faces

laughing and sharing of the different places..

she hid within the walls of her confined spaces..

voices asking who she was, why she was

until she could no longer take it..

shielding her eyes

Holding her breath, begging for rest

from the demons she felt within her chest..

A light mist surrounded her

And in her mental confusion

she welcomed the haze as her safe place

evaporating there for the rest of her days..

Beyond the sad…

the sad is shifting

the good is lifting

I see with the heart of my eyes

It’s no mystery you somehow missed me..

on an unmarked day

At an unknown hour

my heart came alive..

full, wild

and thriving

with all the commotion going on inside..

Time has put space between the sad and the good – as it should..

I miss you once upon another time..

you danced my heart full of sunshine and kisses sweet

I’m moving beyond the sad

glad I lived it well

my heart is where it was to be

It is beautiful and free..

Free as the sea..

Jealous of the night that wraps you in its’ intoxicating moments..

The moon that rocks you tender as you slumber..

envious of the sun that shakes you gently with its’ morning hello..

Oh that you could see my light and how it revolves around you

That my heart was still the beacon that lit you up..

You closed your eyes and it went black..

So I’ll grieve and

My heart will bleed

Yet I’m removing the shackles that bind me

I’ve done my time..

I won’t sulk anymore

Nor dwell on the memories

I’ve kissed them goodbye

No – I will not steep in sadness or misery like a bitter tea..

I choose to keep moving and let my heart be as free as the sea..

a part of your soul will always keep me whole..

Unlimited beauty

a tiny sprout

That’s all it took

to rejuvenate her beauty and make her whole

springing her back to things untold..

a seed planted

Growing like a weed

that changed something frightful into something beautiful..

You moved about her heart without getting trampled or torn apart..

changing the backdrop of her ugly

you set her free from the limits of her life..

The iron bars melted from her soul

She sees beauty everywhere she goes

The glimmer on the trees

Dew on the grass

Sun kissed morning skies that disappear so fast

And the hope that has closed the door to her ill-fated past..

There’s not a word for everything you’ve done but she needs you

like the flowers will always need the sun..

Melancholy Heart..

life is full of mystique

the unexpected causing us to always seek..

some uncertainties shrouded in mysteries to great to grasp

leaving it’s unforeseen moments creating our past..

I may look the same

sound the same

Feel the same

But I have no name

My insides screaming for all we can’t see..

my heartbeat – once your haven –

come to me

lay your head to rest where it longs to be

as the sounds of the beat bring you home to the retreat of Me..

We are circling the sun

open your eyes so you can see..

Let our hearts feel how it used to be..

I’ll always need you as the moon says hello

to the sun as it eclipses its’ glow..

I’ll follow you anywhere as long as it’s everywhere in this life of the great unknown..

You &Me..

The silence around you is louder than usual

Crazy as it seems

Crazy as it is

the radio silence drives me..

mutations of your heart..

The more extreme

the closer I feel I know your being..

Am I hallucinating

Or is this real

Because it’s you I no longer feel..

I’m grieving more than just you

For you see

I’ve lost me

we are one person

We are two alone

Always multiplying into the unknown

Now I’m not so sure

was i you


Am I me..

Worth the fall..

Published February 18, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

those ears.. eager to hear what they wish to believe

They listen with hunger and zest

wishing to settle all this unrest

Pour it all out – little by little

gleaning it up until You get your fill

and it becomes the absolute real even as it sits you still..

One lie turns into many and the truth gets lost until a lie is all that’s left

at such a cost – it’s crushing heavy in your chest..

It will leave you walking on your knees as you grieve what you can’t perceive..

Stand strong – don’t give in to fit where you don’t belong..

Comfort is a tough thing to give away

Don’t fear what you don’t know

Allow yourself to grow

Stand tall

The end game is worth the fall..
