Lost, but I surrender…


Down the trotted path I troth,

breathing in a lost forgotten darkness

that I so terribly loathe.

My heart has grown cold,
and my blood is thin
as I begin to shiver
in the damp cool mist.

Why this place has forsaken me,
I do not know.
My memory is faded,
as it has lost its eternal glow.

At one point, I gave into surrender.
But I do not remember chanting,
all mighty God, surrender me!

My voice has cracked,
and my breath is short.
Strength has since escaped me.

How I only wish I could recall
my plea,
Oh Lord, good God,
Please surrender me!

All alone in a dark cool mist,
I’m trying to fathom even my last romance-
I can’t even remember my last
longing romantic kiss…

I am forsaken,
Twas it was me they have taken…

Hanging low, in a world so dark,
I can’t feel the warmth
of my once eternal glow.

My soul has shed,
and my heart has bled.
And all of those loud chaotic voices
keep repeating in my head…

Could I be dead?

Trapped in a moment,
without pure bliss…
How I long for one last goodbye kiss.

Oh, please someone remind me..
Who was it that stole me away from thee?

Lost in a cool damp forgotten mist.
I only cry out once more,
Oh God, please, I surrender…

Fill me with warmth,
I want to feel the light
of the eternal glow…

I’m so sorry…
I didn’t know.

Oh dear Lord, please surrender me…
They’ve taken me,
and I didn’t want to go.

I surrender…
I surrender…

Please show me
your eternal light.

“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.
