Dark Poetry: Untold Secrets


Untold Secrets

Through the heavy depths of a cloudy murky fog,
Secrets lay low, careful to not make a sound.
Behind the black curtain of hidden darkness,
the unknown is still,
waiting to be released
to the unexpected.

Inside the lonely night of moonlight and stars,
one’s hope is deceiving
as madness waits to scream.

The waiting arms of terror sit patiently
to capture the wanderers in search
of the unexpected…
To imprison those on a search for the untold secrets.

The heart of madness
and the spark of terror
make up such a monstrous creature of horror
who waits for his unforeseen captives…

Captives who tip-toe through the somber blackness
to unlock the enlightening treasures of untold dreadful nightmares
and solve the secrets that only appear in lucid dreams.

The answers that go untold buried far beneath a crumbling earth
and a hope that gets lost and carried away into the abyss.

The captives attempt to capture faith
to keep it warm in the horrid blackness of the grim night
as the secrets go unspoken,
forever being imprisoned to the terror that blankets
a trembling world on hold
as it waits
in a frightening silence.

“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.
