I’ll remain..

Published April 29, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

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

Bloodstained..

I will never forget what it is like to be lost and free..
I will always know what it is like to be found and bound..
we went round & round
until my sounds were silenced
You never understood
My heart was your design
the markings of you permanent..
The ink has dried
yet on & on we go..
even though our song is no longer sung
you are all I know..
Who could blame me
I didn’t want just the flame
I wanted my turn to feel the burn and to
consume me..
You collect the debts of my soul
You paint the pictures in my mind
You paint the pictures in my heart
You will follow me in my new start
As I’m
Blood stained by the likes of you..

Immortal Us

Published March 19, 2018 by lamarrwenrich

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..

Beyond the sad…

the sad is shifting

the good is lifting

I see with the heart of my eyes

It’s no mystery you somehow missed me..

on an unmarked day

At an unknown hour

my heart came alive..

full, wild

and thriving

with all the commotion going on inside..

Time has put space between the sad and the good – as it should..

I miss you once upon another time..

you danced my heart full of sunshine and kisses sweet

I’m moving beyond the sad

glad I lived it well

my heart is where it was to be

It is beautiful and free..

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..
