Ripples of love..

Published September 2, 2022 by lamarrwenrich

flowing gently slowly
ripples created just for us
intimately connected to our surroundings..

beautiful as the dawn
You have drawn
a masterpiece within my heart
engaging all that I am
teach me your love..

light up the shore
overwhelm me with delight
take me to the edge
so I can fall apart
within your heart..

Parallel lines..

Published May 30, 2022 by lamarrwenrich

blurring the lines
sweeter than wine
love & friendship
laughing crying..
we’re a beautiful rhyme
going up
slamming down
good bad
happy sad
until we become one..
our hearts beating out loud
bleeding for you & I
affection weaving itself into every fiber of our being..
tangled knots of love we hold tight
walk into my eyes
for a love we’ve never known right…
crossing space & time..
an ocean in my body
a river in my soul
not a quiet idea
let it make me whole..

Feathers and Steel

Published February 6, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

For a moment

For a day

Show me the way..

bring me home to the place I wish to be..

I bleed every time I choose to lose..

my heart has quieted down

no longer wishing to drown..

last fight with my twin

the enemy within

not giving in

victory is my win..

The wrinkles on my soul have made me whole..

I’m strong, I’m weak

I’m right, I’m wrong

I’m all mixed up

But I belong..

Feathers or steel

why not both

They make me real..

Only human..

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I welcome it in

desperate for rest

I run till i fall in search of it all..

The charm of the quiet

I’m under its’ spell

I scream till I yell

hungry for anyone to look at me and tell..

I may be alone

as my grasp gives way to the icy fingers on their own

no one there to warm my hand..

It’s ok – I understand..

The only way outward is inward

Don’t think me coward

for there isn’t a lie I’d rather know than the truth..

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..

Animal cry…

Published August 6, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

a heart wrenching wail..
so visceral – I feel you cut to my core..
Just let go
What used to be doesn't count anymore..
I'll teach you how to do it new
I won't let you say goodbye
I won't watch you give up
You cry out silently –
eyes begging for help..
see what's before you..
I will be the she who holds out her hand
The anchor who won't let go..
Hear the scream of my heart
listen to the loudness of my animal cry for you..
I'm the beast who will fight your demons
until your mind is no longer weary,
Until your heart is beating on its' own
Until your legs find the strength & courage to carry you home
Because that is what love does..

Pieces of You

Published January 26, 2017 by lamarrwenrich


Devastation is all you see
you crumbled..
desperate sounds slipping from your lips
Every fiber of my being hurting, aching as I watch it steal pieces of you
You are deeply personal to me
ever so beautiful
You’re absent in heart but not alone in your fear..
I will wrap around you until you see through your heart once again..
Laughing without reservation
Hoping without seeing
Running through to tomorrow free
Your darkest hour is not your defining moment
You will live once more because hope is real – tangible within you
And your broken pieces will be made whole

My love filled you
Soothed you held you
But so quickly you would forget
Kisses hugs gentle words sad words
begging pleading crying
Trying to love the violence out of you..
You said over and over
It is done – last time
Love is it
All we need
It was the master plan to healing all things..
all things but you
Oh how I wanted to believe
You’ve wrung me dry
Hung me out and watched me die
Each hurt hitting so hard
So forceful – I couldn’t get up..
This is the day
You’re on your own
What will you do without your punching bag
Icicles now fall from my eyes
My love turning cold turning to hate..
Take a look inside of me now
Where is she
That girl who gave you her heart
With a love so pure
It rocked your world
You won’t leave her be
Can’t set her free
You just didn’t see
The congealing of her heart
