Dark Poetry: “Static in My Mind” from an upcoming collection, “Buried Alive.”

This is a poem from my new collection that I am working on, “Buried Alive.” This one is called, “Static in My Mind.” It will be out later towards the end of this year.

The collection, “Buried Alive,” is about the thoughts that we have in our mind, that deeply trouble us – that literally – sometimes, make us feel like we are being buried alive.
Static in my Mind
….static in my mind…
The deafening noise heightens as a familiar darkness creeps
Into this aching heart of mine.
For the troublesome memories rise from the ancient grave in which I had buried them within…
Rising from the dead,
Rising from the darkness that they had been.
Static in my mind…
The noise, drowning in thy heart …blocking my light, trying to make me blind…
Static in my mind,
Echoes of a torturous past, singing in my ears…
…freezing my dry tears…
So much time and progress has passed,
For the rescue tower I had built,
Has now collapsed.
Static in my mind
The racing thoughts…inside my beating heart,
They do tightly bind.
For they have risen.
….darkness has dawned….
…Where is the mercy that you have shown me…?
…where is the light that once shown?
Static in my mind…
Oh holy one, my aching heart…
….Static in my mind.
….static in my mind.
Memories, rising from the dead,
Rising from the darkness that once brought me dread.

“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.
