Have you ever tried to wash away sadness?
Clean the sticky residue off your hips;
The last reminder your lover left
Before you parted as strangers.
Have you ever collapsed on your shower floor?
Knees buckled under a tidal of tears,
Beneath a blanket of rage,
That is how we left on that final day.
Shower door opening and closing-
Encumbered by hydrophilic ideas of each other
That would not easily wash away.
