Coffee Stains: A Poetic Paradox, a new book by Ashlee Caldwell, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

I may not be invading your dreams now
But in 20 years I hope to be invading your days.
Making you subconsciously wander in thought
As you stare at your black coffee
Wishing you liked milk in it
So it would become a golden brown
To resemble my eyes that once looked into yours
With so much love it broke your heart in two.

Coffee Stains: A Poetic Paradox is a way for teen readers, specifically high schoolers, to find a place where they are understood. Ashlee Caldwell wants her readers to be able to read her poetry and feel as if someone knows how they feel, knows what they are thinking, her life as a teenager, dealing with things many people deal with, and things a lot of people don't. She wanted an opportunity to affect someone in a positive manner and wants them to feel as if for the first time or maybe the hundredth, someone else gets it. High school is tough, and it's hard to find someone who truly understands.

Coffee Stains: A Poetic Paradox already has 5 Star Reviews on both Amazon and Good Reads:
