Poetry: The Search



The Search

I don’t know when…
I don’t know when I saw
Looked at the
dancing sparkling stars
So far away
So small…
I don’t know…

When my mind devoured
The infinite universe…
Unearthed its vast knowledge…
I don’t know …

How my heart got lost
When it got buried in my soul…
I didn’t know…

I didn’t hear
When my sacred spirit shouted…
Screamed throughout the connected worlds…
Searching for you…
Searching for you to be near

…to speak
To advise
To sing
To talk to my soul…
I don’t know
I don’t know when

How to speak to the gentle angel
Who whispers in my ear…

A voice so soft
Breath echoing through
My heartbeats…

She advises me of the secrets
Of the world…
So I know…
So I can
Reach out to touch your hand…

So I can understand
Understand you
And the secrets
That got lost
In between our lands…

Her fingers strum the
Broken strings of my heart…
Touch the water streams
That fall from my soul…

I don’t know
I don’t know the words
To explain the pains
and fears of the
Universe that fall at my feet…

But the dear angel holds my heart,
Battling all those in a winning defeat…

I don’t know…
I don’t know when…
My world,
This universe
How it all began
Suffering all the conflicts
That slowly crumble its surface…

I try to hear
To listen
To understand
An infinite world,
And all its hopes
That unlock its secrets
In the palm
Of God’s hands…

While I try
Try to search
For you
And the love that
Everyone knew….

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.
