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.

Miss-Used Love

TELL ME
WHAT IS IT ABOUT ME
THAT IS UNLOVABLE
THAT DOESN'T DESERVE TO BE LOVED
TELL ME
WHAT IT IS
IS IT BECAUSE I DON'T PLAY GAMES
WITH YOUR CEREBRAL VORTEX
IS IT BECAUSE I CHOOSE NOT TO PLAY A BAD ASS
I DON'T MAKE YOU RUN FOR YOUR MONEY
BORING
IS BOREDOM WHAT I GIVE YOU?
TOO NICE
TOO SHY
TOO COMPLEMENTARY
TELL ME WHY I DON'T DESERVE YOUR LOVE
IT'S ONLY BECAUSE MY HEART IS FULL
ISN'T LOVE WHAT WE ALL NEED?
ISN'T THAT WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?
MY INSECURITIES. MY CONFIDENCE. MY CERTAINTY.
UNCERTAIN OF WHY I'M WASTING MY TIME
TIME ON YOU
DESTROYING MY SENSE OF SELF
MAKING ME FEEL
HOPELESS
UNDESIRABLE
PATHETIC
"PATHETIC"
LETTING EMOTIONS GET THE BEST OF ME
WRAPPED UP IN YOUR EVERYTHING
THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL
DO I MAKE YOU FEEL THE SAME?
IT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE I DO
WANTING WHAT DOESN'T WANT ME BACK
CHASING A SHADOW
CHASING A FIGMENT OF MY HOPES
LOVE ME
LOVE ME BACK.
DO YOU REALIZE
I HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE
PLENTY
ENOUGH TO GIVE
IS IT TOO MUCH?
MAYBE...
IT'S TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR.
MY LOVE IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH
MY LOVE IS NOT WORTHY OF YOUR SELFISHNESS
MY PAINS START AND END WITH TEARS
IMAGINING MY END WITH NO REMORSE
IMAGINING MY END WITH GUILT AND REGRET
TOO LATE THEN
TOO LATE IT WILL BE
YOU MUST LEARN FROM WHAT YOU SEE
THEN TURN IT INTO REALITY.
 IT'S SWEETER IT'S BETTER
COULD NEVER BE EVER
MORE THAN WHAT I DREAM OF
