© 2019 by Marie Allred Author

"I read this collection of poems while in a melancholy mood, and I found myself extremely surprised with the overall quality and mastery of each poem. The writer is clear and concise, light hearted but yet while dealing with serious subject matters, the content remains unpretentious, with no hint of superfluous wording to make ends meet. This excellent collection does more than tickle the ear and imagination, it tackles difficult subjects in a simplistic way that will surely resonate with the majority of readers. This is a great collection and I would like to read much, much more of this writers work. Bravo!"

"The poems laced throughout What I Can’t Say are exceptional as well as original and transfixing, and I know that they are because even though I have finished reading them all, I can’t stop thinking about them! That is when you know book lovers when you have found a sensational book; it is so exceptional that I found myself re-reading parts and getting lost in them even further.

Marie Allred is a newly discovered poet of mine, but I wish I had found her work sooner because never before have I been so transfixed by poems. I have read a lot of poems in my time, especially since a young age but never have I ever been so provoked by one, emotionally and mentally. Allred does this with her mesmerizing prose and well developed and structured poems. The poems honestly will keep readers turning the pages from beginning to end so do not miss out!"

"In the wake of Marie Allred’s words, I’m at a loss for words that would fully do them justice but I will do my best to articulate the experience. With her book What I Can’t Say, Allred has left me gasping for air in awe of her ability to express the inner suffering and ultimate enlightenment of the soul after passing through times of grave darkness. The way she moves the heart through words is similar to the way air captures paper by a gust of wind. The poems feel so streamlined with one leading directly into the other seamlessly but with each one striking the heartstrings in different ways connecting with the reader on such a personal yet universal level. The words flow in and out from haunting to beautiful and at times, molding into both simultaneously. Highly recommended to those going through emotional traumas or anybody far beyond and in between such as those who love the art of all that prose and poetry can do to us, get yourself a copy of this book. A breathtaking experience that is both incredibly evocative for the heart and purifying for the soul."

"Each and every poem in this collection will resonate with somebody. The author goes from a wide range of subject matters, tones and themes, making each poem stand out in its own way from the next. Each word is strung together with such lyricism and the emotion of the poet really rings through. Striking images and comparison and concise flowing use of language, this collection is a must for lovers of poetry!"

Shanell Bailey

"Deep,
Each poem will touch deep in someone's life. If you truly analyze the words and look for what the author is saying you will see that with each of these poems someone faces the same struggle in life. They are deep and wonderfully written. Keep up the good work. "
