Shower of Tears





Shower of Tears
Annie Louise Twitchell

shampoo still stings the same as it did when I was seven
but the difference is that when I was seven
I cried at the soap in my eyes but
now I don't have to be near the shower
for my eyes to cry and I like showers
now because I can cry and no one
can tell if it's because my world is slowly crumbling around me
or

if it's because I got soap in my eyes
