If it bleeds..

Published October 15, 2022 by lamarrwenrich

Your secrets are my secrets
left to be told
Open me wide
Let’s be bold..
You picked me
groomed me
Shaped me your own
loneliness calling
you made us a home..
the chasm keeps spreading
a mind of its’ own
bleeding out slowly
no way to be won..
you keep reaching, stretching because you care
now you can rest
there’s so little there..
though we are rattled
I won’t stop the battle
the end is coming
no way to undo the damage
it’s done…

a heart splashed in stills
images seared
black -white -colorful frills..
Captured forever
a moment in time
your love fills the gap
molting over me
shaping - renewed..
emotions overflowing
blank pages growing
Will the heart tell a story
A love in its’ glory
a book that is sealed
binding the winding of life as it goes..
moments become memories
living on and on
moments past gone
within a reel of time
dancing reliving
Let’s rewind…

Old made new..

It is all new

this town of old..

as the simple beauty began to unfold

Seeing it with new eyes

It all came alive..

It’s vibrant, it’s real

awakens my soul..

enjoying watching people living their lives

laughing and chatting or

lost in their thoughts –

moments that matter

all at a cost..

Even those less fortunate-

the ones that reside outside-

show a sense of belonging,

adding beauty to the nitty gritty of the hard life they hold,

but never told..

These magnificent old buildings – the secrets they house – so many lives passed through their doors with the many stories hidden inside

They groan and moan, as if they are waiting to share with us, the lives unknown..

The past brings me present

I am reminded once more

That home is always home

no matter how I’ve grown

and old becomes new as it filters through you..

Days of old..

anticipation is

running strong

Thoughts and memories of days long gone..

nerves and excitement fill the air

while some walk around to shy too share

others are living, walking vibrant stories

waiting to unfold with friends of old..

Father Time we can’t rewind — yet the past is vibrant in their minds..

we see it dancing in their eyes – the joy spills over and for a time

past and present intertwine..

It’s good, it’s right

their hearts delight and they let themselves get lost to the magic of the night..

And the days of old become moments of gold..

I wear our history on my face
memories spilling out as I smile
The map of us shaping my heart
I see your shadow everywhere
It calls to me
soothing, warm, embracing
I hear you in the wind of my soul
There we dance
there we celebrate
There we live..
forever engraved in my heart
loving you is such a beautiful privilege and
to have walked together leaves me in silent joy
I’ll always wish there was a way to get back home..
