Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Dedication

This Book Is Dedicated To:
Friendship found within a life of solitude
Ears of love that listened to an ailing mind
Realness in a life of tin
The acceptance of a desperate, lonely soul
Those around the world that believed in a broken shell
My readers and supporters
You are the friends I've never known
You are my strength
Thank you for saving me from my own worst enemy
This book is also dedicated to my son Gavin Jacob Liles who offers me
the truest of all my smiles

From the Inside Flap

Vanity?

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in
which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to
yourself, `I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that
comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do." Eleanor Roosevelt

Standing bare for all to see
Feelings exposed, deep and passionate

Standing bare for all to see
Body exposed, confident and proud

Embarrassed of seeming too vain
Fearful more of going unnoticed
Is there vanity within the image reflected?

A capsule of pain
Little balls of lies and hurt rotate through me
Bump against each other just for laughs

A falling star
Destined to glow passionately
Yet to fall alone through the sky

A warrior
Willingly losing the will to fight
Enemies growing, now too many to defeat

A baby girl
Carried within the body of a woman
Can hear her cry, yet can't reach her

A princess
Constantly awaiting her prince to come
Assuming contentedness in kissing frogs

An aging starlight
Always the center of attention
Knowing she is too old for her life

A woman
Doing the one thing she thought she could not do
Praying that Eleanor Roosevelt was right

This book, with its juicy poetry and provocative photography really were a treat for my husband and me. It takes you to the lowest of lows, but brings you back up to the highest of highs. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a well-rounded portrayal of a real woman.

Format: Paperback
Audrey's poetry goes right to the heart, and from there rushes through your body to set you on fire, or to freeze you. Some pieces about death, that invite to meditate about life and death. And many juicy pieces, the most uninhibited erotic poetry I ever read!
