Time seems to slip with the water rolling down my body
Memories come up and wash away
If I close my eyes, I could be at any age, right now
If I close my eyes, I feel fear.
I stand with my body facing the door, always
Nothing has ever happened in the shower to me
Yet, I feel terribly vulnerable
Naked, Wet, Not being able to hear well over the water
I can only ever relax if I know someone I trust is at home
Short showers generally
Quick, and sometimes ice cold
I’m not in there for pleasure
it’s about purpose
Enclosed in Glass
Dare I dive in?
