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..

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..

I’ll remain..

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..

Handful of love..

oh the life they’ve lived..

as I hold them tight

eyes closed

my imagination goes for a ride

as I try to relive what is inside..

I want to give back what you gave with such grace..

so many stories waiting to be told – wrapped up tenderly in their fold..

Tracing the lines

my hand upon yours

I feel it

I live it..

the moments they’ve seen

the joys, the heartaches and the in-betweens..

through the touch of your fingertips straight to my heart – you’ve been there carrying us right from the start..

those strong, loving hands binding us tight knowing that it took all of your might..

guiding us through each of the plights..

Cheering us on through the good and the bad..

comforting, caressing with all that you had..

encouraging protector -beacon of light

You are what pushed us on through the dark nights..

your hands have loved us, snuggled us and raised us on up..

woven throughout my heart and filled up my cup..

As I hold your hand now

I fully understand

exactly what it meant to be in command..

you’ve given your all

my heart overflows

as imagination and reality finally take hold..

I can stand strong and see old things new

Living this blessing because of you..

Walk with me..

Words may escape us

certainty may evade us..

how did I miss it..

The empty smile

Total denial

slipping – we lost our footing

the ground shook beneath us

the world caved in

eclipsing our sun..

tears may fall with the slipping

Bones may be weary

but my heart remains full..

it trembles with the unsteadiness

as it roars with the love of you

all we need is the beating of our hearts to restart..

no more tears, no more fears..

I’ll fall

I’ll stand

I’ll walk

I’ll crawl

As long I’m silently doing it all beside you..

walk with me
