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 ugly


The ugly

Once there was a time
before love shackled my
mind, before love shielded
my vision to a better life
I was blind

The beauty that
stained my face
in a dream state you
couldn't find but that
was long ago when " choice "
was actually mine

Love created a glue
which tamed my feet
I couldn't climb.... Even
when his care changed the
color of my eyes, his definition
Of beauty my new pretty
ugly defined and still I wouldn't
move due to the stick in loves
bind

I've tried....

Well in mind, mentally
planned a great divide
but due to his bruising replies
that bright idea quickly reclined,

Things I have in
mind are never released
into verbal cries because
the last issue I owned almost
brought me my final goodbye

My life nearly
declined disrespect
registered by his eye, The
decision to use my mind was
considered the ultimate crime

But I love em....
So when he's ready
I guess I'll say goodbye,
until then the " pretty "
pain on my face ill manage
to hide

The ugly
