Contusions cry out for ice
Comfort from a Frigidaire
Headaches hammer temples for aspirin
Excedrin an easy fix
Sore muscles search for a masseur
Hands-on relief an alternative

Bruised egos bleed
Beg to be bandaged
Stressed psyches scream for solace
Psychotherapy a band aid peddled
Without an expiration date

Only the heart aches
In an empty vacuum
Waiting for its intangible relief
