Dark Poetry: She Holds the Keys


She Holds the Keys

In the sparkling moonlight
she did lay upon the damp bare ground
gazing lazily at the dancing stars.

Her beauty of innocence and peace reflecting
upon thy night sky.

Beyond such dazzling young eyes,
was a genius mind filled with everlasting
stories filled of yesteryear and wisdom of centuries…

An old soul, yet such young blood.
Her lips a rosy red, moistened but not kissed
from just any Mr. Who.

Languishing beneath the beam of the moon,
as she escaped to a different time and a different world,
ignoring any possibility of horrific doom.

Thou, she held the precious ancient keys to her kingdom,
and kept them close, far from an imagination thief.

This time was hers…
forever kept.
In such a still moonlit, star-filled, crystal night of endless hope.

“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.
