Dark Poetry: Where’s the Love


Still is the air
In a world gone black.
Peace knows no glory
And all hope was released
into a red cresent moon,
When humanity traded their souls,
For an unknown deadly cost.

The remaining few gasp for air
In a failing world
Of lost spirit,
And confused identities…
They refused to turn in their soul,
Instead, they endured a wretched battle
With undying beliefs,
And hope for a light to shine
Where a sun has gone stale.

Love had no meaning
To the lost souls….
But those who are left behind,
Wait for the whisper of their beating hearts….
One day, the kingdom will prevail.

“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.
