To You, Dearest Love
My dearest love,
oh thou, my heart
has ached for you
a million years.

Sitting under a bright kindred moonlight,
my thoughts fall back to your tender touch.
I lay here, counting every single twinkling star
up in the clear night sky,
bathing in amorous memories that I wear
upon thy sleeve.

In the cool darkness of the faint shadows,
a light of your warmth echoes in my bleeding heart,
for nevermore, will I feel alone.

Dearest love,
for all eternity,
I shall live
counting the twinkles of each star.

Thy darkness will never cool,
nor shall it ever present fear…
You my dear,
were hope in those once darkened days.

Forever, basking in pure iridescent moonlight,
I whisper the memories of all of those midnight dreams,
letting the air carry my secret messages,
so that they shall find themselves
upon thy quivering lips
Where two hearts will encircle the universe.

-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.
