Fireflies

Fireflies

By Allie Marie

Fireflies kiss the night sky –

but no one ever told me why.

I can’t escape my own path.

Everyone knew it wouldn’t last.

Still, I tried to differ.

I thought they’d all be different.

I can’t blame failure

when we allowed ourselves to become strangers.

Wet grass cushions my tired feet.

Fireflies beckon my thoughts into the night.

They buzz softly

with a flicker of light.
