Trailing Emotions is the second poetry book authored by Shirley J Black, which continues from her first book A Place For My Soul Filled With Flowers, which exposes the author's pure feelings and emotions from a life dealing with cancer. From confusion and pain to love and life, Shirley tells a story in poetry of the reflections of her life. Trailing Emotions is wholly embodied in the emotions of her later life in 2007 having lived through the pain and emotional agony to a certain stage. Culminated in this book is not just the story of her livelihood and fight against her medical conditions, but the emotional distress in the lack of intimacy and her lack of romance and love for her loved ones. This book is a reflection of Shirley's aggressive determination and strength to prove to others in her capacity of how one can be a role model even through trying times, like hers. She further goes into the depths of her love life and the dreams of an ideal setting should she had never faced herself with a deadly disease like breast cancer. A truly sensational and intimate poetry art is delivered in this book through her own preferred and selected words.
