And She Hope

She arrived home from work
Took a piece of banana from the table and ate it
While she waited for the water to boil for her cup of tea
She stood on the small alley near the shower room
And gently disrobed her body from her office uniform
She stood there for a minute or two
And went inside the shower room
There she sadly allowed the water to drench her body
She didn’t mind the coldness
And she hoped, oh she hoped
That she could wash away the pain and emptiness
She feels inside that earthly body
