My heart’s aflutter! I am standing in the bath tub crying.

My heart’s aflutter!
I am standing in the bath tub
crying. Mother, mother
who am I? If he
will just come back once
and kiss me on the face
his coarse hair brush
my temple, it’s throbbing!
 
then I can put on my clothes
I guess, and walk the streets.
 

Now I am quietly waiting for 
the catastrophe of my personality
to seem beautiful again,
and interesting, and modern.
 
The country is grey and
brown and white in trees,
snows and skies of laughter
always diminishing, less funny
not just darker, not just grey.
 
It may be the coldest day of
the year, what does he think of
that? I mean, what do I? And if I do,
perhaps I am myself again.
