The Most Beautiful Review

I had the great honor today of reading a review of my book From the Shadows that my friend "M" posted on Facebook.  It is truly the most beautiful review that I have received so far.  This review brought tears to my eyes.

"From the Shadows " is a new release by my friend Erica. It is a must read if you love poetry and darker side of human life.

Quoting one of the reviews - " Dark, Disturbing, Haunting and Beautiful". I have to say that pretty much sums up the book. The beauty of the poems is that you can relate to the situations and emotions, they are so familiar to you and when Erica capture them in words they turn out to be powerful and strong.

I have read the book already twice this afternoon and I want to read it again and feel the words...
My favorite one definitely is "Behind the Mask" , I can see the womain in the mirror, for she is me.
Then there is "Reign Me In', which I couldn't help 'stealing a few lines' and updating my status with. Then there is "Shadow Man" -

"But what you didn't know
Was that your cruelty
Released me from your spell
Now friend had become foe"

"Scars", "Trapped in my Skin" and " Plato Was Right"

"Been Content Here
Just Me
On my own....
Plato was right
All along
I am a circle
That's been torn."

I can keep going on forever. The poems are truly captivating, every word speaks to me and I "wish for release at last....

You can find the book at

Erica is also planning a book release party and I KNOW it is going to be a huge success.

Erica, this is to you.. To me, dark was always haunting, you made me realize it can be truly beautiful and that life is incomplete without the darkness.Thank You. xoxo

Thank you "M" so very much.
