Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Poem, ‘Longing For The Final Peace’

She longs for solitude
To be free
Of a life
She cannot bear
Any longer

She sits alone
In her home
The fear of darkness
Keeps her confined

Deep understanding
Of evil and sin
All around her
She’s suffocating
Can’t breathe

She gets lost
In her dreaming
Of solitude
To keep her
Sane, alive, breathing

No-one can be trusted
Always the ones
She trusts the most
Who hurt her
The deepest

She hates herself
For ever trying to trust
Why does she trust?
Her masochism
Self harm

Her belief in humanity
Never to be trusted
Increased further
By every betrayal
Every lesson endured

She’s longing for peace
For quiet
For silence
To fall asleep
And never wake up.

To be free.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
