Sometimes I just sit there, huddled at the bottom. Leaning forward, my chest pressed against my knees. Listening to the soothing white noise of the droplets crashing against the vinyl curtain. Rubbing the warmth into my head and neck. Trying to massage some semblance of ambition into my body.
If I can just scrub hard enough I might wash away the doubt and fear. I might rinse away the filth of the worry, and shame, and guilt.
I look up and let the water run across my closed eyes.
If I just stay here long enough I might come clean.
