naked i let the warm air touch my bare skin
i let the cold water caress the tension
hidden deep inside
from years of fear and hiding
i have become everything i've wanted
and slowly i am mending what i thought was broken
raw to my fear
and naked to the past
i have accepted my own phsyicality
i kept thinking if i kept looking
i'd find someone who would fix me
and make me care
fill that void and replenish the emotions i lost
here, in the cold water
with the curtain open
alone with my naked body
i have found that person i was searching for
so desperatly i needed them
having finally gained their acceptance
i let the biting cold touch all of me
a single tear mingles with the water
my hair flows over my shoulders
and the water flows sweetly over my closed eyes and open mouth
and i am free from my own constraint
