Drop by drop she let it wash her pain,
The lukewarm water over her bruises,
The sting far sweeter than the words,
Drop by drop they fell ..
Word by word they pulled at her skin,
The tangled path of claiming hold
The nakedness far bearable than told,
Word by word she felt..
Tear by tear she let it all escape
The noises of protest in head,
The silence around louder than else,
Tear by tear she felt and fell tonight.
