Silent Prayers

Silent Prayers

By Allie Marie

I don’t have the right to say anything.

You probably wouldn’t want to hear from me even if I did.

I’m a misstep in your memories;

one you didn’t bother to even say goodbye to.

And even with what strangers we are now…

and even with what you put me through….

my prayers during this time

are still with you.

Fumes

Fumes

By Allie Marie

 

I wish I could understand,

but I can’t – how a dull fume

can turn wildly red as it

burns across your heart.

Such a small thing.

Such a rush for nothing.

I’m the water that won’t give

you any reaction.

Stranger –

I’ll let you burn

in the flames as I plan

my great escape.

 

Faded Dream

Faded Dream

By Allie Mare

 

She wanted more for you

than this faded dream –

this back twisted version of how

people should be

when love becomes a fog

and they can no longer see.

A bright white room

echoes your screams.

An earthbound angel in distress

must learn to breath.

She’s praying for you.

And, so are we.

Fog

Fog

By Allie Marie

I can see in the dark.

I can’t see in the fog,

even with the street lights on.

Driving on old roads.

Breaking on the cracks of the secrets.

Tearing up on the radio’s lullabies.

In front of your house now,

honey you don’t want to ride with me.

I don’t need to wait.

I already know it.

Tightrope

Tightrope

By Allie Marie

I dance on silver wires.

Threads play between my hands.

A single spotlight in a crowded room

stops to focus on me.

I guess this is a show and

not a game.

Oh you wish you could do

what I do, don’t you?

But, you make the ticket sales

so you’ll get by just fine.

Up here is a struggle –

trying to smile and trying to balance.

Somehow although

I always make it alright

Taking Corners

Taking Corners

By Allie Marie

 

There’s the corner you never turned.

Don’t you know it’s dangerous?

Just to leave your mind

to walk in circles.

You deserve more than this;

a life of unchecked lists.

I don’t know if it means anything

when I say this.

Oh, chances are you’ll go back

and erase it.

Your heart is destined for greatness.

Let yourself make it.

 

Night to Break

Night to Break

By Allie Marie

 

I wonder if it is what you see.

Oh honey and do you hear the same as me?

Streets lights break up the fog.

Sirens cut through the crowds.

Feels like we’re on the run.

But, we stay still.

Same old words and

same bad decisions –

as we wait

for the night to break.
