Before I met him, I would dance in the shower.
When he was in my life, I would think about showering with him.
After he left, I would sit on the ground in the shower and cry.
When I got over him, I showered so quickly there was no time for dancing, fantasies or tears.
Someone can invade the smallest parts of your life,
you won’t even realize it until you dance in the shower again
and wonder why you ever stopped.
i’m an ocean nothing floats on
i’m a sky that nothing wants to fly in
i’m a sun that doesn’t burn hot
i’m a moon that never shows its face
i’m a mouth that doesn’t smile
i’m a word that no one ever wants to say
well if we take all these things
and then bury them fast,
and we pray that they turn
to seeds, to roots, and then grass
it’d be alright,
it’d be easier that way
