    Left
    Bereft
    With no inner joy
    Nor any distracting "Cheer"

    Toiling too long
    In a turbulent "Tide"
    Broken and battered
    In a violent "Surf"
    Wondering with every gasping breath
    Will the next be my last
    As I am "Wisk"{ed} away....

    Is this "ALL?"

    Is there nothing more to "Gain?"

    What, if any, new "Era" awaits me?

    When will I repose, relax, and rejuvenate
    Within the soft, gentle, tender "Downy"
    Of a soul at peace

    Be engulfed and luxuriate
    In the calm, soothing presence
    Of "Jasmine"-ladened nights
    "Lavender"-filled evenings
    "Vanilla"-perfumed days
    Cleansed with "Fresh Rain"
    And bask in
    Warm Sunshine?

    I want not just a diversionary "Trend"
    But a heart and mind
    Renewed and Still
    In tranquil harmony....

    I liked the way you incorporated those brands into your piece. And yes we want to be cleansed, renewed, at peace, and thoroughly so. Enjoyed this poetess.
