Someone Else

Someone Else

By Allie Marie


Maybe you found someone else.

Honestly, I wouldn’t blame you.

Maybe, that’s the worse part.

You met the barrier of my heart.

Beautiful and tainted.

Anxiety hides the soul

I wish that I could bare.

I can’t expect you to be patient.

But, I expect you to be kind.



One Thing

One Thing

By Allie Marie
Listen here.

There is just one thing

I need to know.

We should take 

this slow,

but are you willing

to make me your home?

I don’t want to go.

My heart can’t

play games anymore though.

So speak the truth.

I promise I can take it.

I’m not a little girl you see.

But still there’s so much

left of life for me.

But I can’t live with hidden truths

and for a life of mediocrity.

So think about it

and let me know.



By Allie Marie

You don’t like it when I’m happy.

You don’t like it when I’m mad.

You don’t know the way it hurts

that you’re better when I’m sad.

Jealousy is a real disease

made to leave us to crawl on knees.

I’m a prisoner in the house we built.

I blame your guard when it is my guilt. 

Won’t Wait

Won’t Wait

By Allie Marie

I won’t sit here

just to wait for you.

I’ll stay safe, yes,

but it doesn’t mean I’m your damsel in distress.

I may be

a little unconventional.

My heart is wild;

runs through these towers.

My mind on fire

melts paint on tapestries.

I got by just fine before you.

I’ll go on after you.

If you want me,

say what you mean

and begin to be

all that you dream.



By Ally Marie


Anxiety tattooed like a riddle across my skin

Irritated eyes switch to glasses

Fingers like drumsticks against the base of the table

Words drown by too much of my drink

Not even alcoholic but it replaces saying what I think

Force myself to leave the scene

Escape into the bathroom

Catch a reflection in the mirror

What I see I was never after

But is this really me

Torn by my own decree




You Shouldn’t

You  Shouldn’t

By Allie Marie 


You shouldn’t stick around.

You’re smarter if you don’t.

I’m just around the corner,

but never really there.

Stuck in this place

concerned over whether I should care.

I play a game with your patience

and my insecurities.

They say these things-

well they say they’re easy.

They’re not when you don’t know

you are meant to be.
