Poetry: Trust

Trigger Warning: Non-consent

Trust is a fragile thing that while it breaks easily

Is often fixed just as easily again

I know you are sorry

I know you don’t know what to say

I don’t know if you remember what happened

I know I wish I didn’t

Trust is a fragile thing that grows in the spaces between

Doing awful things and making them better again

I always remember everything when I’m drunk

I always tell the truth and you deserve to know

I always want to be able to speak

I always want to be free to scream no stop

Trust is a fragile thing that may one day exist

You just need to do things in the right way

I don’t think you’re a monster

I don’t want you to touch me like that again without asking

I don’t need space or time

I don’t hold it against you

Trust is a fragile thing and honestly

It’s okay
