what if..

Published September 6, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

if I leave the light on
will my shadow come to life..
will you know I’m real
will you feel all my feels..
if I stay still
will I fade into the night
no light bright enough to save me..
will my secrets be revealed
showing nothing to conceal..
what if I leave the lights on
Will the dark ever end
can the night sky touch my soul
making me whole..
what if..

Jagged edges..

Published August 30, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

we are the beauty we speak
unique, joyful
in the love we seek..
edges smoother
there is no defeat..
roaring through
scars & bruises alike
so much to gain
in life’s pain..
unevenly shaped
beautifully jagged
heart torn ragged
from the irregular
spectacular love
we shape..

dear me..

happy to be here
happy to see
i’m swept up in moments
dear to me..
always changing
always knowing
blessed in life
when I am growing..
reflecting
enjoying
taking it in..
pining for more
moments I adore..
jump for love
soar with its’ highs
grow through the lows..
breathing in deeply
the sorrows and woes..
exhaling it out
as the beauty unfolds
the gifts of love
my heart holds..

Light my fire…

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..

Tracing lines of my soul…

Tracing lines of my soul

found my breath while I was drowning..
Slow fire burning
Oh how Im yearning..
Heartbeats yours
loud, fierce
gentle, strong..
determined to live out what’s mine
a wrinkle of time is all
that’s begun..
warmth stirs my soul
lingering on
like the beauty of the sun and the stories it holds..

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…

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

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..

Liquid sunshine…

burning through my bones
whiskey to my soul 
we come to life with the love we’ve sown 
the only home I’ll ever know..
dancing in the breeze 
free as the leaves 
floating through air..
Love is what it does 
We are what we do 
So simple I dare..
I drink you in
you are my skin..
