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

Emotions everywhere

Dare I dive in?
