Wicked Delightful Ecstasy

I’ve spent too much time in the wicked wrath of torture…

I envy those whose blood I see spills

To the floor through their open wounded pores.


I shriek with absolute jealous delight,

Wishing that were me, screaming in pain…

This beloved darkness is everything I have to gain!


In loneliness, darkness and despair,

I’ve sat alone, forgetting how to care.


The wrath has taken me into its arms,

Rocking me as its own.

It whispers to me the blasphemy of its own doom,

Sharing secrets in this utterly dark room.


I spy those receiving the endless torture,

Begging the evil wrath,

Why can’t that be me?

Blood curdling screams,

The noise,

It brings me happy ecstasy .


I jump from the wraths arms.

No longer can I ignore the impending pain.

It’s everything I want to gain!


Bring me fear!

Wash away my tears.

Let me scream!


Oh gracious evil wrath,

Bring me to my knees.

How I love to hear thyself scream out

In heart wrenching ecstasy.


See my blood drip to the floor,

For I am whole

No more.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
