That overworked, unbearable feeling

A malaise, an inability to comprehend

The misunderstandings of normalcy

The attack on the body and mind

Carelessly and haphazardly tossing

Any bit of sanity into an abyss of black

An empty hole, where darkness overtakes

Your eyes, battling to remain aware, losing

Drifting off into a common nightmare

Replaying again and again, skipping

Like a broken record, struggling

To gain an even ground, never

Finding the way to regain, the vigor

Of energy dissolved, you breathe

Beaten down, until you collapse

From the weariness of trying

To defeat the undefeatable
