Best Poem of Eloisa Gearhart

The Bath

Unworthy of my time or my glance
My hands plunged beneath the water
felt the coolness turn to ice and my skin began to sting
Washed myself of you and your foolish games
Your taunts, your perceptions and your names
Your breath hung over me like a cloud and my vision was blurred
until I was only an amorphous silhouette shifting in the fog
unable to discern my own self from this thickness

The searing, the severed nerves burning inside
my legs enter the deep
Needles, stabbings
spreading until it covers my chest
freezing me, halting my breath
I'm alive ...
