The Medicine That Burns by Molly S Hillery

It is a raw declaration on what a life of trauma can look like after the dust settles and the poems have happy endings. It is an unflinching narrative on how hurt is cyclical, how recovery must be redefined repeatedly, and how shame can poison us in the worst ways.

A debut poetry book that takes you through a journey of brokenness to reach complete healing.

May
