air beneath my feet…

Published April 27, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

flying
or stuck
this gilded cage of mine..
breathing or suffocating
the walls are closing in..
lost myself along the way
do I have to stay..
everything I ever knew
came from you..
I feel the air beneath my feet
rattling my bones
breaking it down
building it up
I see the door
the way out..
listen to my shout
flutter your wings
let’s change the scene..

Quarantined love…

one way ticket
enjoy the ride…
will we survive
as we walk this in stride..
is it my heaven or
hell that’s arrived…
what you imagine is what you will see…
it can be easy
free as the breeze
or lock you down cold
struck with disease…
hope is a dream
not always what it seems…
Detours here
Detours there
Sometimes happy
sometimes they scare…
seven years passed
like water under the bridge…
for a brief moment in time
our lives paused
giving us cause to love without laws..

alive in the fall…

in the quiet
I’m there…
when you’re not looking
unaware…
the lull of my voice
leads you there…
Loud in your heart
pushing and pulling
leaving no choice…
what will you do
who is it that rules…
Can’t part the sea
to reach the shore…
Undertow looming
till you’re no more…
The ground racing toward you
alive in the fall…
I’m hidden in the details
Greatest secret of all…

Canvas me..

unbleached cloth
your love seeping through me…shaping my heart until it’s tightly woven…a canvas to you – Paint me what you will…my colors vibrant by your gentle touch – happy to mix it up…changing shades in your storm – set sail with me – in the sea of love we have formed…

Rooted..

solid strong our house won’t fall… bones are good changing with time like petrified wood… banged around chips hit the ground… melodic pain it’s worth the gain… we scatter but won’t shatter into pieces we don’t know… we built us well… time will tell

Symphony of you..

Published February 11, 2020 by lamarrwenrich

Tugging, pulling 

the music is cued..
Heart strings dangling  
waiting on you..
wound up tight 
Fill me with dread 
Or sheer delight..
It’s a choice 
your choice
which do you choose…
elaborate 
full spectrum 
You bring on the charm
Symphony in my head
sound the alarm..
it’s music 
our music 
we don’t skip a beat
Let’s waste moments together 
while we bruise in the heat..
blood vessels may rupture but what do we care 
a little discoloring 
we will not scare..
We’re classic 
complex 
symphonic at best..
our love is relentless 
when put to the test..

Liquid sunshine…

Published January 30, 2020 by lamarrwenrich
burning through my bones
whiskey to my soul 
we come to life with the love we’ve sown 
the only home I’ll ever know..
dancing in the breeze 
free as the leaves 
floating through air..
Love is what it does 
We are what we do 
So simple I dare..
I drink you in
you are my skin..

Scorched

searing 
burning
lighting my core 

you cut
twisting, turning 
leaving no spot..
the screaming in my soul it can’t be whole..
I want to soar 
touch the sky
feel the sun 
till I’m high..
in my eyes you’d see the
sunshine till it made you cry..
if your wanderlust settled 
you’d stay awhile..
A tale we could tell 
you’d know me well..

This is love..

Bruised knees to bruised hearts 
every moment – a new start..
you give
you take 
we grow through heartache..
searching 
wandering 
leading me through 
Beautiful ghosts I always knew 
you give and I live..
Memories within 
never grow old..
invaluable, priceless
we slowly unfold..
I’ll dance with the shadows of all that we know 
you color my heart vibrant 
our story untold..

the rain came..

you chose to stay 
chasing the sun until my heart you won
clearing the melancholy 
sharing the joy..
the unknown looming 
my eyes watching 
pondering the beauty you bring to my heart..
In the losses 
the dark spaces 
you continued to give..
the rain came 
each drop washing away the old..
you didn’t run
turning us around 
we’ve begun…
