Release me
From the shackles of my own misery
Lock my eyes to yours
And we’ll see so much
Delight and prosperity
We wish.

Pull my heart out
And wash the valves
Place it back into place
And leave it to beat thunderously.

I don’t want to change
But I may have to
To be…

spokenwordpoetry:

It may be odd that I see you

like an art piece an art piece

in a museum

but you were always just there

and there was no way

I would ever forget you

One day when I thought I did,

I must have stumbled upon a path

that lead me back to you

and the memories we had

I saw you and

I remembered…

DECATUR, Ga. — Police are searching for suspects in a deadly Decatur kidnapping.

Authorities say a man and a woman were kidnapped early Saturday morning and found just a few hours later handcuffed and each shot in the head. Their families have pulled together a $15,000 reward for anyone who can tell them who did it.

The family says Jeronta Brown and his fiance, Briana Brooks, took their 8-month-old baby and 14-year-old niece out for a meal. When they got back to their Decatur home, several men jumped them.

The children were able to get away, but Brown and Brooks were put into the back of a van.

Brown’s aunt, Myesha Brown, said the men tried to get inside the house before leaving.

"The guys walked up, started ringing on the doorbell, beating on the door, yelling, ‘FBI, FBI,’" Brown said.

Instead of opening the door, Brown said they called 911. Police did show up, but Brown said they didn’t take the kidnapping seriously.

"We were unable to get the kidnappers what they wanted due to Dekalb County thinking that this was a joke, this was something Jeronta set up," she said.

Brown said a family member got a call shortly after the kidnappers took off, demanding $150,000.

By daybreak, a driver 17 miles away in northwest Atlanta spotted Brooks and Brown lying in the street.

Jerota Brown was dead. Brooks, seven months pregnant with the couple’s second child, was alive. Doctors were able to deliver the baby girl by C-section. Brown says the infant is doing fine, but Brooks’ condition remains uncertain.

DeKalb County police were unavailable to talk about the crime and their response to it because of the holiday weekend.

UPDATE: Sadly, Briana Brooks was taken off of Life support and has passed away.

RIP to Briana and Jerota

Pray for the children
