Bad Enough

i didn’t go

to a centre

or to a hospital

 

because i assumed what happened to me

wasn’t ‘bad’ enough

or violent enough

 

besides which

it had been a long time

since it happened

but i was depressed then

so it is only now

that i see it

for what it was

 

i don’t know if i can ever explain

how much it hurts to ask for help

because when you ask

you hope like hell

the other person

will believe you

 

it’s like

jumping from something high

and asking for a rope

just before you start to fall

 

but to everyone

this has ever happened to

i don’t need to know

the further and better particulars

 

i don’t need to know

the what, the who, the how

the when or the where

or the why

 

all i ask

if i ever tell you

is for you to believe me too
