Dying of Exhaustion

A hybrid prose poem

The muse — who is she? —
has never left me,
I left her,
exhausted, spent
words lost in a sea of exhaustion
paddling to stay afloat
going nowhere but
down, fast

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
