Poetry: She silently screams

 

 

She Silently Screams

Through the fire and flames,

she foresaw the images of yesterday,

the fears and the terrors

that brought her nighttime dreams.

Those things that haunted her mind,

that made her silently scream.

 

An uncharted past, that so diligently

took up space in her head,

that carried disturbing thoughts

when she went to bed.

They kept her awake…

Sometimes it was more than she could take,

as she would so silently scream.

 

Moving on, towards an uncertain future,

her heart carried the weight of things

that once were.

Planning for each time,

only day by day,

instead of months at a time…

were now so much easier for her.

 

Her body carried an unseen strength,

something that never once was present on

the outside,

because too often, she spent too much time

lingering onto her soul,

that was breaking down deep inside,

as she would so silently scream…

 

Carrying a smile that so many others saw,

and singing a laughter that she only wrote the music to.

Nobody would hear her,

as she would so silently scream…

 

But she carried on,

with an unseen strength.

“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.
