Dark Poetry: Broken

Broken

The moment I escaped out that door,
I felt all of my frightened blood rushing to the floor.

Out the door to a haunted world unknown,
where I feared I’d be all alone.

One too many times-
you had cast the sacred stone.

A desire for madness overtook a confused and broken heart
as I watched an entire lifetime
fall apart…
Tears shattering to the ground like glass,
Darkness clouding my vision –
choking me with its invisible gas.

A slow beating heart injured, dying to feel emotion
as it succumed to numbness
from all the psychotic friction…

I could not pick up all of the pieces.
My hands felt permamently tied
as I sat there in the bitter cold
and cried…

Because a precious love I once knew
had died.

“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.
