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.

I'm Ready To Be Now

Please Hold Your Applause
I'm Ready To Speak Now
Can You Believe...
...Now?

My Mind Speaks Volumes
I Speak For Myself.
My Heart Tells Stories
I've Kept Within
Who I am...
Is Here.
Hold Your Applause

Killing A Spirit
Slowly Dying In Shame
From Outside World,
From Outside Pain.
No Applause?

Stepping On The Surface
Of This Fragile Glass...
Treading Softly 
But I'm Still Falling Fast.
Black Alice 
Going Down The Hole.
Where She Lands
No One Cares, OR Knows

Do You Care?
Will You Care?
Is This Too Much To Spare?
F88k Your D8mn Applause.
I'm Fighting For a Higher Cause.

Holding Your Applause?
Why Do I Care...
You Never Praised Me.
Nor Ever Cared.
I'm Talking About You
YOU
You
And You...
With Your F88king Judgements...
Your Wretched Black Heart..
I'm READY TO BE Now!

Surrounded By Silence.
Blank.
Staring At The Wall.
Blank.
Crashing Inside.
Blank.
Where Do I Feel...
There Is No Place.
Darkness I Tread.
But Cannot Sustain Much Longer.
The Light Calls Me.
And Tells Me To Breathe Stronger.

Don't Praise Me Now
I'm Pulling Myself Up.
But You Keep Knocking Me Down.
My Smiles Are Frowns
B8tch That I Am...
What Lies Beneath...
I'm Not Allowed To Be Happy.
To Be Free & To Speak.
Held Down By Your Control.
I've Learned To Abide
Cut My Soul Into Pieces
But I Remain 
With Some Pride.

Wrong Or Right.
I Have No Sight.
I'm Not As Good As You.
Scared Of Your Bite.
Pick Myself Up...
Pull Me UP.
When You Throw Me Down
Ignore.
Degrade.
Ridicule.
For Your Love Of Me.
Damn Your Sickness.
F&ck Your Love...
Tis' Not Love But Evil.

Surrounded By Silence.
Blank.
Staring At The Wall.
Blank.
Crashing Inside.
Blank.
Where Do I Feel...
There Is No Place.
Darkness I Tread.
But Cannot Sustain Much Longer.
The Light Calls Me.
And Tells Me To Breathe Stronger.

Holding Your Applause?
Why Do I Care...
You Never Praised Me.
Nor Ever Cared.
I'm Talking About You
YOU
You
And You...
With Your F8cking Judgements...
Your Wretched Black Heart..
I'm READY TO BE Now!

Do You Care?
Will You Care?
Is This Too Much To Spare?
F8ck Your D8mn Applause.
I'm Fighting For a Higher Cause.

My Mind Speaks Volumes
I Speak For Myself.
My Heart Tells Stories
I've Kept Within
Who I am...
Is Here.

Hold Your Applause Now
I'm Ready To See Now
I'm Ready To Speak Now
I'm Ready To Be Now...
