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

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..

My Toxin..

strychnine

inhaling, swallowing , absorbing you

your taste ever so lethal..

I slip away

I fly high

I fall apart

The pain I hide in dissipates..

Do you know I’m gone

Do you feel it in your bones..

I’m free

As they bury me eight feet deep..

with me goes the hurt &

the lies as i mix in with the dirt..

leaving me be

all my secrets

all my fears

have been set free..

Walk away and know –

I’m as happy as I’ll ever be as i go..

You are the only one don’t you know..

Immortal Us

Selective thoughts

forget me not..

memory loss – if it isn’t you and I carrying the cross

the gap too wide to fill – my life silently still..

We sit between chaos and peace

a rare gift are the

moments we share to keep

the chaos spreading us here & there

Splitting us into pieces we can’t bear..

Yet the peace we share is beyond compare..

There is a deficit in my heart – one that shortchanges me if we are too far apart

you alone are my home..

Some share love that reads like a poem-

then there are those that play out like an episode

while others could fill a chapter..

Ours would be a book that continues through the ages

criss crossing all the stages as it gauges the wonder of us..

maybe I’m biased -maybe I’m skewed

But the chant of my heart determines the slant

There’s good, there’s bad and much to be had

But only the good remains..

a Blessing and a Curse..

Blessed it be the mystery of love..

not to be solved -broken down or tamed..

Love has no name – it beats to its’ own game..

I lived for this endless wonder

Thrived in its’ unspeakable beauty

grew by the sounds of love

until I never knew this kind of blue that it possessed..

my world went silent

sharpest quiet cut me down until

my ears could no longer hear

My heart could no longer bear..

Yet I’ll always care for this lovely game of love that causes such despair..

Cursed it be the mystery of love..
