Fire and Water written by J.V. Stanley & A.N. Ramey

J.V. Stanley & A.N. Ramey Fire and Water
Two lifelong poets, sisters, and best friends have fused together to bring you a variety of poems designed to melt the heart and inspire the soul. Separated for a time and coming back together stronger than ever they proudly present, "Fire and Water." The poems touch upon the earthly and otherworldly cares, delving into the complexities of the soul through the various trials faced through love, heartache, and everything in between. Join them on their journey through the dark and into the light. Travel with them through the gauntlet of poetic life with its obstacles at every turn. Each challenge they faced, however, paved the way for them to step forward with fierce determination and ever present love. Their poetry is mostly free-verse, but touch upon various forms such as the Kyrielle, Harrishma Rhyme, the Italian Sonnet, Etheree, and Twin Etheree.

Pen'D Poem October 21-28


You look at me with

Love in your eyes

Heart filled

With Venom

Because the scene

That just played

Out


I came at you like

A crazy lady

Because you just

Punch Me

Not even saying you

Are sorry


Fist flying all around

Heads bobbing and

Weaving

Dropping down to the

Ground


Getting up real quick

With a big ole stick

Swinging frantically

Protecting myself

From the onset of

Blows that you

Throw


What's Love Got To Do

With It

As the saying goes

 Love don't suppose

To hurt

Leave you all

Bruised

Using all kinds of

Excuses


I did not mean to

Do it

You made me hit

You

But Honey you know

I love You!


As I look at you

With a swollen

Lip

A big black eye

Wondering

Why!

Am I Here


Why choose to

Stay

When I should get

Away


Promises that you

Would never do it

Again


But you really are

Not the better

Man


Gathering up all

My things

Racing for a

Safe place


Starting new as

You look thru

Posturing like

You help

Me


Reality I did

What I needed to

do

Went were I needed

To be


Picked up all the

Pieces

Straighten out all

With Ease


 Traveling around

Town

Telling my story

Helping Others

From around all

Corners of the

World


I am Stronger!

I am Older!

I am Wiser

Than before


Vowing to never let

Another man

Get me so

Low

Were does this

Type of

Abuse happens

Again


Listen! Listen!

Listen UP!

Abuse - Love = No

Good coming from

It

Know you are worth

So much more


Survivor of Abuse

Controller of my own

Pockets

Believer in myself


To be an Island

A force

To be reckoned

With

So in the end

Just recognize

This
