“The Bath”

lying here

eyes half-closed

listening to the whispering winds

that say I told you so

heart real heavy

mind unclear

soaking in a red bath

and recalling everything that set me on this path

the ripples in the water

each a reminder of a fatal mistake in my life

‘til I lie still

making them disappear at will

head leaning to the side

eyes fully closed

wishing I could turn back time

and say this fate ain’t so
