Linens dampened with salty tears
Shed in stillness of darkened rooms
Dry fresh in the warmth of summer sun
Inhaling a welcome gentle breeze
Broken vessels of madness shattered
Shards of life suctioned through hoses
Solitary protection inside a bubble
Freedom is found in the vacuum
Dust accumulated in days of monotony
Stagnant moments of unvarying lives
Cast aside in steady, sweeping lines
Shine restored with helping hands
Coppery stains on porcelain hearts
Used until worn, now worthless, ignored
Pampered in powdery citrus springs
Their glowing sparkle freshly renewed
Refresh your mind
Cleanse your soul
