The Road to Happiness

At the end of the day

I got in the shower

Tried to wash away

All the pain you caused

Watched the blood go down the drain

Knew that the emotional scars wouldn’t heal
as fast

Maybe will never leave

Like I know you never will

You are there waiting for me

At the end of every day

Around every corner

In every hiding place that I try to go

Only in the shower

Can you not reach me

Alone in the only room with a locking door

Hidden in my sanctuary

Washing away any hint of you

Washing away every hint of you

I don’t know what happiness feels like

But if it is how they say

I think that here, in my shower,

Is the closest I will ever get
