Fell off my skin
Scales, water running through my fingers
When I realised
it was never mine to hold
But only what had been put upon me.
That relief. The freedom. The liberation.
All of it wild, abundant, and beautiful
I cannot wait for you to meet me here.
I left the residue on the bathroom floor. And let it watch me walk away.
