My Response to Daily Prompt: Cozy

Bath bubbles smother me
Boiling water scorches me
And still, I turn the temperature up
I rarely feel alive until my body is numb
And red, cherry red
Veins flowing with heme
Inside, organs pumping for me
Involuntary motions become second-nature
Voluntary motions barely make it
Another day, another bath
To soak me up
Melt away my distrust
Devour my insecurities of lust
Smooth my skin
Contain, abstain from messing up
For now, I am cozy
The water soothes me
