Shower

  I took a shower to try to wash away
all the pain and sadness
you brought to me today
I stood under the water until I was soaked
I held my breath
until I choked
I lathered my body with the soap
to wash away all your love
and all my hope
I shampooed my hair that you loved to touch
I tried to hate you
but you mean too much
I turned off the water and stood there bare
alone and naked
needing you there
I walked out of the shower and looked in the mirror
this person is alone
alone and in fear
I wrapped myself in a towel that smells just like you
I know this because
I smell like you do
I dried myself off my body and tears
and try to see beyond
this little girl in the mirror
I made an attempt to smile but it failed as did I
so instead I held myself
as I started to cry...
