Sodden Regret

I sat curled up on the shower floor –

The darkness broken only by the faint light

From a crack in the door –

Until the warm water turned from cool to cold.

There were still pieces of sadness and shame

Clinging to my skin as I reluctantly stood and

Turned the faucet off, my body dripping regret,

And grabbed a towel.
