How to love

Run a bath with lavender oil and find yourself a good book.

Read out loud and learn how to use your breath as you struggle with the heat and the words;

it will become easier as you ease

into the porcelain and stretch your legs over the edge as nobody is watching.

Sink a little deeper into the water

and into yourself, collect all of your edges

and hug them in toward your heart.

Say thank you.
