"The Long, Dark Bathtime for the Soul"
Sitting in the tub, only a small candle for a light
The flame flickers on the wall, barely holding back the night.
Wanting to take an escape from life’s eternal wrath
Christiane wasn’t sure what to do, so she took a bath.
The wax drips down the sides, hardening as it goes
And Christiane stretches out her limbs, popping bubbles with her toes.
She soaks and dwells, internally yells, at all that has gone wrong
It all feels like it lasts forever, but it isn’t really very long.
The water has cooled, her skin has pruned, and the bubbles dissipated
So Christiane is forced to return to her life earlier than she anticipated
She remembers to remember, that it’s all okay because
None of it really matters, except the stuff that does.
