fatigue envelopes me
wrapping me in its embrace
coloring my world
in ash-grey

muscles complain
the burden of carrying this frame
is too heavy
my bones weep for respite
and my joints threaten collapse

each day is darker
than its predecessor
though the sun still shines
and heat radiates
from the ground

the search for motivation
becomes frantic
as the realization settles in
that no matter
the actions taken
nothing can soothe
this wounded spirit

and i long for the day
when weariness wins
and the peace
so long sought after
becomes the only presence
that remains
