You Made Me Dirty

I used to stand in the shower,
with the water as
hot as I could make it.
Then I would wait until
it got colder and colder,
silently hoping that it
would drown my thoughts
of you away.
Hoping that it would
scald the tears that
you once placed on my cheeks
with lying kisses until
they crumbled off.
Then one day they did.
Pieces of you melted off me;
your smell, your taste,
and they turned the water black
as I began to breathe easier.
Steam crawled through my brain,
burning memories out through
my pores and onto the floor.
New light in my eyes watched
the remains of you
fall off me, and then
get washed down the drain.
