Sarah Lilius’s Song for PTSD is a brave snippet of a victim’s attempt to recover from the atrocities of sexual violence through treatment and self-awareness. In “My Truth for You Implodes Like a Star,” she muses, “Therapy inside me, I collapse without the necessary bones that hold me up. If I am your child then you can’t turn me away.” This poetry chapbook explores her struggle with trauma as well as the complex and healing relationship she forms with her psychiatrist.
