Deaths’ sting..

Published January 11, 2023 by lamarrwenrich


so painful it’s dangerous
the wound is poison
absorbing my heart..
lingering on
black clouds shadowing me
Insidious hands boxing me in
falling apart
broken
truths that shatter my heart..
bruised skin
battered mind
you won’t win
standing at the edge of the abyss
it’s you I miss..
Bittersweet
I feel you
I hear you
I taste you..
starting to live again
there you are
in the middle of the day
in the middle of the night
letting me know it’ll be alright..
no more sorrow
no regrets
letting go
death has lost its’ sting
my heart will sing..

Tilted..

slipping, sliding
into the mess it’s become..
mental, emotional
confusion at best
a crime to my being
you know the rest
lunging at your core
it’s mine to score..
giving up rights
to keep you in sight..
eyesight is failing
can’t see straight anymore
a heart is left wailing..
who could have guessed
love clutches hate
leaving the loudest quiet in
its’ wake..
Tilted
sloping
heart left groping..

My tomb..

mixed in the madness
made a perfect mess
Odorless
Tasteless
who could have guessed..
blinded happily I couldn’t taste death..
following your footsteps
thought I passed the test..
the sun was shining brightly
calling me through and through
yet the dark cold was coming
somehow I never knew..
falling deeper and deeper
despair has had its’ way
I do not fear the reaper
I know he’s here to stay..
it’s life that cuts like a knife
With all its’ strife..
I’ll see again
feel again
reveling as I’m whole
death does not separate
united is my goal..

brilliant
cultured
One of a kind
swooped in quietly stealing my mind
An endless love was taking root
with every beat of my heart..
prostituting all I knew
with the allure of something that wasn’t true..
You startled my heart
divided me wide
Seduction
betrayal is all you knew
a madness deep within you rules..





Ripples of love..

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
Undone
Overcome
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…
entangled
engrossed
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..
