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.

The ship has sailed
And I feel I failed
But the truth is
You failed me

You never gave me a chance
Always hesitating.
Scared to take the next step.
I got tired of waiting
With hope going nowhere

Always Testing Me
Am I everything you wanted?
Is this truly what's meant to be?
But can't you see
How much more proof do you need?
My love was paid in full
A marriage license annulled.

Somehow you thought I was lying
When all I was trying to do
Is prove that my love was true
I thought I knew you
But I guess I was wrong
Realization translated into this song

You thought I was messing with your homies
Your boys, like brothers, learned to know me
They even told you no
But you were stubborn
And would not let go
of morbid thoughts...destruction of our union
That you took the time to ruin
Why did you waste our time
I hoped one day you would say,
Will you be mine?
Who are you?

By the time I received notice
I had already wrote this
My light already blew out
I felt no joy anymore
To be the one you adore
Figment of my imagination
(In daydreams I feel elation)
Now I must walk away
It hurts too much to stay
I must go my own way

Someone else will be sure
That my lonely heart is pure
And no one else will have it
I will no longer think of you
After we said our goodbyes
And are through.
Because you didn't fully trust me anyway.
