DARK POETRY: THE FALLEN

Requiem_by_lady_symphonia_large

 

FALLEN

In desperation, they will fall victim to the darkness when the light blinds them.

Through the dark, the lost will reach out for a hand,

Only to be pushed back farther…

The darkness begins to taunt them

But captures their curiosity all the same.


The fallen may not agree with all the light has to offer,

so they turn to a mirage of possibilities

which seem unmistakably real.


Although, they shall find out later,

It was the bait to pull them in through the dark.

They become sullen, fallen creatures of uncertainty

Who will be tortured by the shadow spirits

and broken by a false hope.


With only a blinding light creeping through the cracks,

They will only hope to rise up,

without the fear of being pushed farther back

into a dark hole

where all possibilities of rebirth


become

none.

Published by Ariana R. Cherry

“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.
