The Bathtub

The Bathtub

A Poem by Zoya

last night
it wasn't just water
I bathed in

it was a pond
full of mistakes I made
and regretted fiercely
but at the end of day
was grateful for

it was a river
full of thoughts
stifled with oh so difficulty
at some point in life or another
that had started taking
fearful shapes

it was an ocean
full of memories
some from the time
when my heart used to be whole
and some after the time
the x-ray failed to detect
the hole in my heart
(but I knew I had one)

the waves collided
against each other

there was a storm
brewing up

and that was
the ninety-ninth time
I drowned in
my bathtub

I absolutely adore this. Sometimes we have a lot of thoughts and feelings jumbled up in our minds, and the best way to turn them into poetry or art is to go somewhere quiet and soothing - such as a bath or shower - and just let the thoughts flow through like water! Wonderful work, and I'm glad that you're grateful for how far you've come, for no matter how rough it was, you were tougher and fought through it. That's something to be proud of! Keep writing, Zoya. :)

Haha... Ninety nine rubber duckies in a row.... You knock one down.... Ninety eight times I'v drowned in my bathtub... OH NO...!
Somehow the end brought a measure of comedic relief from the fierceness of the river of thought we are taking in... From X-rays to switch-endings... The waves certainly collided within me as I delved into this one...

I am somewhat of a gibberish master, mam. Np, lol
I like the way the bathtub is a motif for much deeper elements of life.
The imagery is vivid and arresting.

Well done
