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.

Moments In Life

Sometimes I wish
god equipped my
jaw with the clinch
of a pitt... Or blessed
me with hands the size
of your mental vision
of his.... Sometimes life
I can't stand like my
legs were severed at
the hips, somedays
I wish I had a switch that enabled a moment
to quit

What if you had
a break from every
thought that advertised
a struggle....all your
worries disappeared absent
resistance there's no reason
to huddle, I just need a few
moments to free myself from
uninvited trouble it's like every
other step I'm giving a reason
to stumble

they say these moments
make us who we are...
what if I said I'm content
with who I am by far?
if I know I've reached
my limit I deny my
vision toward the bar
I wish some moments
were an option it's still
okay to walk even though
you own a car

If you haven't
lived on earth it wouldn't
be extraordinary to reach
the stars, yes I know ones
strength is determined by his
wounds or her scars

But there's no
more room,My
soul is stained by times
of hard.... My skin saturated
by poverty my presence expected
behind bars

Living in this skin
as a man is a constant
spar just dismiss the
training gear and substitute
the ring with a jar....

there is no escape
the lid sealed shut
with my life to guard,
so imagine all my
wounds no space to
move I'm plagued with

I can't afford to
fail the cost is
beyond my spending
limit.. Certain moments
I don't desire living like
such has me timid
