Totally rundown
Shattered and ill
Work and other life stuff
Had her fill
Tired of everything
Needs a break
Somewhere quiet
Maybe by a lake
A lack of sleep
Throat like sandpaper
Weak as a kitten
Doing herself no favours
Not had a good sleep
For a very long time
Too much to do
Too much on her mind
She hopes for some rest
For the gods to give her a break
Maybe then
She can get to that lake…
