Cleansing

3 am and there you are waiting for me As always so strong and sure I love you for that Skin so pale glistening in the moonlight You never judge me, you've always loved me The mask I wear in front of others is not needed when I face you It tumbles to the floor followed by my clothing I sigh as I walk over Its time to turn you on I use that circular motion you like so much That warm slick wetness between my fingers Has me smiling contentedly The steam in the room is rising I step inside and allow the water gently cascading All around me to wash away The tears, the dirt, and the stress of daily living I let the peace of the darkness and your calm stillness flow through me When I'm here, inside of you, is when I can be me Theres nobody to please but me No facade of happiness to cling to Here, is where I feel my sadness, my anger, and my grief Hidden far away from eyes that might judge and condemn Or worse yet eyes that would look upon me with pity Pity that would cast my achievments under a shadow And encase my soul in the well-meaning intentions of others Lavender soap washes away the hardness clinging to my body Turn off the water as I'm left standing in steam Air dry to keep the peace going I love you deeply as any lover My shower
