Hail to Me

Published January 7, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

Lips are moving

I can’t hear you

Heart is beating

I can’t feel you

shielded in,

Covered, protected

so well guarded..

all smiles tucked away for another day..

Never to light my face again..

Not a dimple, not a twinkle

No not even a sliver

Least the house of cards come crashing down..

Fire away &

Stand back

The ricochet will slam you hard..

The holes you feel and see are me disappearing

never to be seen again

the decay of you & me is all I see

A chapel built around the image of we..

No longer what we were once meant to be..

broken down – on my hands and knees..

Let’s set our hearts free

reach for me please..

Crookeds and Straights

Published December 27, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

zig zagging..

crooked or straight


created from life..

past & present

join, intersect and form us..

binding us tight

The memories

What we hold near&dear

become our truths..

what we see, what we feel, what we believe to be real

Is how we deal..

it can grow us or

ravage us

choices to be made..

It is ok and sometimes

it is right to live in the crookeds..

There will be no finding the straights..

For there to be a shadow

There has to be light

let your focus be on the bright..

Our Soundtrack

Published December 13, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

Stay lost..

Lost in our dance

never find your way out..

Let it be me

Only me you see

As you move your feet to our beat..

that rhythm of pure sweet..


Love only me in the sea of hopes & dreams where nothing is like it seems..

For my sway will stay –

no matter if you’re sitting & I’m standing or

You’re running & I’m walking

The picture in your mind and the soundtrack of my heart create the perfect harmony..

and I am bending, stretching and syncing to your every move..

Lost in the rhythm & blues of our rock’n’roll..

It’s done

You won..

soothing words settling my soul

You inspire a beautiful burning hunger within..

What is it worth

if it lacks love..

What does it prosper if I can’t find my way out..

You gave me direction in my lost world –

raw, real, honest

One of a kind – planting me so firmly

I will sway every which way – yet never loose my footing

The more I understand the less I know..

I only know

You give all you have –


The very best

Because it is for us..

Burgeoning, flourishing, alive..
each moment budding into a better person..
suddenly aware of how much life is in each moment;
lived or wasted by choice..
the trajectory of the moments changing..
sending me flying into orbit as I discover the many shapes of me..
My heart – a geometry of sorts..
Lines curves and angles all intersecting..
an arrangement of the parts of my heart all stitched together into a beautiful symmetrical love..


Ugly Beautiful

Published October 26, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

battered, bruised and chipped apart

but we are solidly rooted

grounded in love..

misshapen – with an unspoken beauty-

an inward badge of hope, courage and strength..

We stand strong

like the statuesque oak tree that weathers the storms –

as it creaks and moans in its’ twists & turns..

we -too- bend to the mighty winds – growing in wisdom, connecting and forming to other branches – until we are so solid – no force can shake us..

standing firm in our twisted stance – we are beauty –

catching the eyes of passersby

sharing feelings of great expectations and desires of hope..

A Ray of Hope

Im releasing you free

unearthing you from the ties that bind

though you don’t know you need to be

helping you see

giving you back you

You don’t need anyone to think for you anymore..

You are wonderfully, imperfectly made

The merry-go-round you live on is spiraling down

Jump off

Let it out

Let it go

change up the sorrow you wear so well –

with inside joy

Let it stretch your face with laughter and

Set you free from

Your cage..

your light will shine in..
