Untitled(help me think of one?)

Sitting in the shower letting the steaming hot water splash onto my skin
I watch as the steam collects outside the shower
I watch as it obsorbs all my pain, feelings and problems
I watch as it fogs up the mirror; covering up the hideous being inside me
I cant breath; the hot water and steam make it hard
I dont move
I sit there like a statue
I can hear the water rushing out of the showerhead
But I pay no attetion to it
The hot water has made my body numb
So now I barely feel it
That is until it turns ice cold
It jolts me back to reality
Throws everything back at me
Oh how the water has betrayed me
The ice cold water seeps through me and chills my bones
Still I sit there in a daze
Then finally realize that I must get out
That I must face reality and its cold embrace
Oh how I wish I could make the water hot again
And watch the steam take everything away once again

Wow. Great imagery! Really, I reallt felt like a was sitting in the shower. I like how you write poems, it takes you away in a way that no other poet does. For me, anyway. But hmm, a tite...maybe Hot and Cold? I don't know. But that poem was very good! :-)
