Bathroom Mirror (object writing)

For now the world behind me is visible but that will soon become cloudy and fade away. The water burns just the way it should and the dirt falls to the floor. A fragrance of warmth and light seems to dance with the drops of water that fall on my face and then through the drain. When the glass is pulled aside, a cool rush of air hurries to greet me.
