A Dip In Her Sins

She stepped one bare foot into the hot water.
It felt so warm.
She climbed in,
lay down,
let the hot water engulf her body
The lights were dim,
the water dull.
She closed her tired eyes...
a tear dripped into her bath water.
then another
and another.
The water meant to cleanse her sins
was now infected with them.
Yet she lay,
soaking up the water,
soaking in her sins.
She kept her eyes closed,
trying to forget.
