Burnout

Abecedarian poem

Another month passes.
Burnout settles in.
Capacity reached. I feel
Detached, depleted,
Exhausted.
Feeling everything and nothing.
Gutted.
Hibernation sucks,
I am bored.
Just putting one foot in front of the other, coasting. Off
Kilter.
Lifeless.
Melancholy.
Numb.
Overwhelmed.
Prolonged stress taking its toll.
Quarantined-out. Must find new ways to
Renew.
Sinking.
Tapped out.
Uninspired.
Vacillating…
