Lingering Shower

please, just two more
minutes in steam

and i’ll be ready
to brave

cold on the

of curtain

it’s true, life feels
much wetter..

but better

stretching in spray
of hot rain.

      • I’ll def take the compliment. 😉 I feel envy often when I listen to music, especially if the artist is really into what they’re doing.. as it’s something I’d so desperately like to do but I don’t seem to grasp music theory very well. I guess envy looks a lot like inspiration.. heh. I know you weren’t fishing, but what I envy about your writing is how the tone of your poems can change every time you read it. I think the brevity and succinctness makes their impact strong, but also leaves room to breathe. Also a lot of very relatable topics with a vulnerability most keep closer to the chest. Like I said, I know you weren’t asking for a compliment, and I wouldn’t be offering it if I didn’t believe it, or think it independent of this comment. All the best!

  1. I couldn’t agree more.
    I once met someone who said they preferred silence to listening to music of any type. Interestingly enough we don’t talk anymore! 😉

    No, I certainly wasn’t fishing but your words are very kind. Thank you.
