Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Poem – Unrequited Love. Hurts ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

Leave a comment

unrequited love hurts

I dream of you often

At night

In the day.


My love for you,

Not reciprocated

I know and feel

This all too well.


But my love is not

Dependent on yours

As true love never is.


I want what I cannot have

It hurts my heart.

Tears fall.


You cannot be

What I want you to be.

My heart sighs.


You do not care

How I want and need

My soul cries.


So I love you

And you do not know

The dreams I have.


But I do dream of you.

Those hushed thoughts that dance

Inside me remain silent.

And will remain

My painful secret.


Unrequited love.

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.
