She Takes Long Showers Part 2.

She takes long showers,

Not because she needs to clean

Or that she takes her time,

But because it’s the only time

That her cold skin ever warms up;

Her frozen heart pumps with life.

Only then does she feel

Like nothing ever happened to her.

She can even pretend

That when she steps out

She won’t feel the shame

Cling to her skin again.

Then she would be fine—

She would never be fine,

Ever again.
