An angel of repentance with a heart of stone.
A heart that was once soft to the touch, now lay dormant, cold as rigid ice.
Her long dark flowing hair wrapped around a pale slim body adorned with broken wings
torn to shame, which she wore like bad memories.
The fallen angel once was inhabited with a warm rich soul,
but now it hovered listlessly,
confused feeling cold and abandoned.
Once flying high above the spiritual universe,
she twinkled with the stars and shone with the moon.
Now she struggles for the warmth of the sun
and the love, of an everlasting spirit…
Broken wings, broken soul.
Will she prevail to rise again?

“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….
