Feelings

I stayed until the water ran cold

 Tears combined with shower rain

cascading over my face. 

 I thought I could erase feelings

of sadness and frustration,

and move towards  

unapologetic elation. 

 

Memories of the pacific shore

and ocean salt filled my mind

as I traveled through time. 

Letting each desperate thought

brush over me, then they each

were quickly released. 

 

Working my way past dissociation,

accepting my feelings as transient.
