What happens when you shower in the dark? you can't tell the environment around you, only the soap laddering on your skin, and the streetlight peering into the scene.
you don't get to see your arrogance accumulating from loneliness like soap rinse-off left to dry on the ground. the act of showering is to be clean but you can't concretely see your arm so how do you get to cleaning when you can't see? how do you continue to hold on to hope when the feeling of the need of warmth is pushing unto every square inch on you? when you know the moment you turn the shower off that coldness comes rushing in. leaving your skin prickle displaying bumps like that of a feather-plucked chicken readying for the feast. Now you've got to resist, and hopefully they say he would flee.
Then you step in front of a mirror, remember its dark. meaning there is nothing to see, but the fog is there to feel bubbling in your face, churning your skin. you know this darkness is not good for you, but you embrace it like well a known friend reeling in its obscurement, applying layers of cream.
this is for daniel, for the truth that came disguise as laughs
