I hear it
Before I feel it,
Cool drops
Speckling my burning skin,
Washing away the tension.
Mist swims around me,
And I am the only person
Right now.
I feel alive.
I feel beautiful.
As it showers over me,
I feel
Like myself,
And laughter shines
From within,
Glittering against the mist
And ringing off the puddles.
I let go
Of frustration,
Of stress,
Of everything
That could take away
From the magic
In this one moment
Where I am free
To be me.
