Love Connection

Love Connection

Love is not something to
take lightly.
It has its trials and tribulations,
And convictions of the heart.

Love is also a force that
Can tear the human heart apart.

Without love,
We feel like an empty vessel,
A black hole,
Praying to only be fulfilled.

Love is patient
And it is indeed kind,
But so often hard to find.
Especially in its pure form.

Love can heal,
As well as torture,
Forcing an angry heart
To feel.

We can run away from love,
Going miles beyond.
But it will find us,
Striking us with its force,
And it imprisons us,
Making us see
What was meant to be.

It is also an undying force
That will set us free.

Although, in the wrong hands ,
Love can cause pain,
And hurtful tears that fall like rain.
It makes us fear
Ever having to feel again.

But with a pure forgiving heart,
Love can also mend
Those strings that got torn apart.

Love is not to be taken lightly.
It is an invisible tool,
A bond that connects us all
To create a peaceful unity.

“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.
