Old made new..

Published October 16, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

It is all new

this town of old..

as the simple beauty began to unfold

Seeing it with new eyes

It all came alive..

It’s vibrant, it’s real

awakens my soul..

enjoying watching people living their lives

laughing and chatting or

lost in their thoughts –

moments that matter

all at a cost..

Even those less fortunate-

the ones that reside outside-

show a sense of belonging,

adding beauty to the nitty gritty of the hard life they hold,

but never told..

These magnificent old buildings – the secrets they house – so many lives passed through their doors with the many stories hidden inside

They groan and moan, as if they are waiting to share with us, the lives unknown..

The past brings me present

I am reminded once more

That home is always home

no matter how I’ve grown

and old becomes new as it filters through you..

Days of old..

anticipation is

running strong

Thoughts and memories of days long gone..

nerves and excitement fill the air

while some walk around to shy too share

others are living, walking vibrant stories

waiting to unfold with friends of old..

Father Time we can’t rewind — yet the past is vibrant in their minds..

we see it dancing in their eyes – the joy spills over and for a time

past and present intertwine..

It’s good, it’s right

their hearts delight and they let themselves get lost to the magic of the night..

And the days of old become moments of gold..

I’m yesterday..

The darkness returns

cocooning me in its’ web of warmth and loneliness..

bringing you back

and all we knew

All we know of our highs and lows..

we’ve been kissed by the rain as it washed away our pain

We endured the fire as it branded our hearts..

another place

Another time

our love would have never been erased..

my arms hold on to the empty space

so hard to hold on to what’s gone

Harder to let it go..

I am yesterday

It is tomorrow..

Closing my eyes

I’ll feel it one more time

as I welcome in the dawn..

Snapshots

Published May 20, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

snapshots of my heart..

a growing collage of us created from the start..

we grew like a pixel – multiplying over and over until the image of our love covered us whole..

Reel by reel

You play me..

unaware how you slay me..

3D explosions in my heart right from the start..

Can’t escape the moonlight of your eyes

Your reflection is everywhere

You burn bright within

I’ll give in

I’ll step out of the darkness and let you light the way..

we may be amateurs at this

but the impression you left on my heart snapshot me back to life

we have created quite a collection of where we’ve been and what’s to be..

I’m so glad to be part of this story..

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..

Misunderstood

Published April 29, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

You take from me

Keep shaking me

raking me through the coals

You gloat

I mope –

we reap what we sow..

It don’t matter to the world

It will keep spinning

Time will keep winning

No matter that you’ve changed

I may be delicate & sweet in all that you see..

But don’t misconstrue what you think you know

about me..

I will shine again

I will find my sun

I will find my feet and learn to run..
