The Bath


The water is soothing and healing.
The chaos on the other side of the door is irrelevant.
Relax and forget where you are.

The conversation is getting louder.
The chaos on the other side of the door is now about me.
Relax and forget where you are.

I can't believe what I just heard.
My life on the other side of the door has just changed.
Relax and forget where you are.

She made my father choose her.
The life I knew on the other side of the door is gone.
Relax and forget where you are.

I try to enjoy my last moments of peace.
I opened the door and was told I had to leave.
I'm only 15.

I had nowhere to go.
I was only 15.
