Face of Depression Relapse

Motivation sapped
Naps more often
Isolation is king
Messy floor
Dirty dishes
Empty stomach
Lights off
Muscles slacken
Thoughts turn
And turn again
Distraction peaks
Self-talk speaks
Idle ideation
Mirrors crack
Faces slack
Heavy mask worn
Fake smiles
Too tired
to finish this poem
