Paradise Rooms 3--behind the shower curtain

The light in this bathroom is pure as a visitation, white-gold--you expect visions offering lilies, paranormal clarity, hazes of brilliance, in the early morning or late afternoon, so that the shower, tub, toilet, window are charged with splendor and when you stand behind the shower curtain in the steam and mist and press your hands or tits or knee against the white plastic making wet pink impressions, glimpses of naked skin, it all becomes revelation, too brilliant to see directly, and the light is so clean, and so divine, and so pure and radiant that it's like the annunciation, even when he's just sitting on the downturned toilet seat watching you in the shower, there are angels in the water vapor, and when you soap yourself and rinse, you can almost believe that God is with you this time, with this one, if you can just stay clean and glimpsed through perfect light and mist, behind a screen, if you can just scrub yourself inside with light then this one will last.

Quit whatever it is you do and take up the craft of writing Hallmark cards like this...it'll set the greeting card industry on it's ear!!

Really though, I love the imagery in your words; read it once and then close your eyes and go there. The word is the portal to AmyJo's Secret Palace...
