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 : August 25 - 31

Lynnett Fox
Mannequin

I thought I was fool proof
But the bullet hit and shattered
My heart
Stone cold
Faceless with no one to hold
A shell of my former flesh
Nothing left
As I try to break into me
I scream
Please
Still not being what
I'm supposed to be I dream
In abstract
A statue
Of virtue
A figurine
So serene
A doll
Who's likely to fall
Smaller then life
No one's wife
As my body produces
No more tears
Lost in the window pane
Mannequin
Life not happening
A puppet
For all to see
This is me
Plastic with a soul
No happily ever after doesn't exist
Or I wouldn't be stuck like this
Fairy tales
Are full of it
My strings
So easily pushed
A servant 
Subordinate to my position
An instrument of tradition A tool
Yet still no bodies fool...
