No One Would Understand the Words

So many times ago…
I was told –
No one would understand the words…

The words that flow so openly through
the feathered pen of my musical heart…
Those words, that pick every particle of my
inquisitive mind apart.

They said nobody would understand…

The words of my eternal soul…
That sing so lively into the midnight air,
that touch the sparkling moon and kiss its face…

They said nobody would understand…
Nobody would stay to listen to my enlightened spirit
as it explained her tale of woe…

The words…
The words that strum the wrenching story of my beating heart,
explaining how a cold darkness once tore it apart…

They said nobody would understand…

So please…dear soul…
Tell me…

Why do you sit here now,
weeping to these tales,
as you hold my hand?

Afterthought: “For when he said…”Nobody likes poetry…nobody will ever read your poems…”… He did not understand the power of words….Of words that touch the soul, mind and heart….For one does not HEAR poetry…They FEEL the words…You do not LISTEN to poetry….You experience it.



Sometimes, it hurts, to feel everything so much.
With reality, it puts you out of touch…
Those, with the wooden hand- they don’t plan.
They’d rather rip the warranty tag from your soul.
Trying to shorten your “eternity.”
As if they could!

But when, they scratch your soul,
You’re left, crying in the rain…
All you want to do
is heal the world’s pain…

In those times,
you feel love just may never be enough,

But when you wear your heart on your sleeve, feeling everyone’s such delicate touch.
What if…love is all that is left, to gain?

– Ariana R. Cherry 2017


Life is precious…
Life is full of years…
Some longer than others…
While some may have less time…
But …it still feels too short-

It is never enough time
To say…
I love you…

While time is not eternal…
Love is.

If you were ever interested in reading any of my work, two of my books are available to download for free for a short time.  The first book available for download is my most recent epic tale, “Only If,” and the other is my inspirational poetry collection, “Divine Poetry for a Spiritual Mind.” If you would like to review my book once you have read it, you can do so on Amazon or commenting here. I hope you decide to check one or even both of them out.

Happy reading!


onlyiffrontcoverOnly If” tells the horrific tale of Billy, who has gone crazy from sitting in a jail cell for years and blamed for the murder of his wife… Throughout the years, he relives that specific night, when he lost his beloved wife, Clara. Stuck in a jail cell, locked away from everyone who had loved him and a memory that continues to haunt him each waking day. To most, he looks and sounds to be a crazy lunatic murderer, but deep down, Billy is just a scarred man with graphic disturbing memories that carry him to the edge of his sanity. Written in a poetic epic style, “Only If” will surely entice the reader to join Billy down memory lane and experience the tragedy that brought him to this very moment in life.




Divine Poetry for a Spiritual Mind” is a book of poems that will bring you hope, enlightenment and inspiration. These poems encourage you to look more within yourself and find out what your destiny or mission is in your life. The world is a much bigger place than we could ever imagine and our lives are only the beginning of a beautiful lesson…

I’ll Stop the War

You weren’t there for the battle,
You didn’t feel my injured heart when it broke in a million pieces..
The door was closed…
The windows were shut.

Outside, the stars were performing a beautiful dance under the moonlight,
But indoors, an atrocious storm was brewing in the midst of darkness.
The silence was broken…
And the well was flooded with tears.

You didn’t see it …
Just me
and the enemy,
as my soul fought for freedom…

I was alone.

You didn’t see it.

I will be the warrior and the messenger,
and report the crucial details…
To fairwarn anyone else who could be in the path of such a war.

I will keep the well from overflooding,
and be sure the moonlight will shine with the dancing stars.

I’ve walked through the darkness and I will not let it haunt you…

As my faith grows,
and my hope blossoms,

I’ll stop the war.
