Created on Dall-E

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
