The Shower

The Shower

The sound of the shower
Spraying on the floor
As my tears drop along
It comforts me

Is it the sound of the water?
Or maybe the fact that
It drowns the sounds I make
As I drown in sorrow

No matter how numb,
How tight, how heavy,
The water’s warmth
Never fails to embrace me

I lost track of time
Minutes felt like seconds
Did I take too long?
The shower is so calming

Once I leave the shower
I know what to say
“Do not worry,
Shampoo got in my eyes.”
