Sometimes we all need
a hand
Or a leg
Or an arm
To get up
Over the ledge
Or pull us back
From the edge.

They say,
If she had gotten
Help before
she’d be okay.
If she’d only
spoken up more
talked about
how she felt
such serious doubt
for the future
To keep going without
Something
Else.

But they didn’t ask
Didn’t try to
penetrate
her mask.
They didn’t question
her strange
Reactions.
Didn’t see the tracks
of recent tears
just run.
took her at her word
she was still
just having Fun.

Couldn’t we see
the hole
opening up
where she used to be
The empitness
in her smiles
which seemed
to stretch
for miles.

She’d still be
Beautiful
Still thrive
She’d at least still be
Alive.
