Burn Out - Poem by Maja Dezulovic

When emotions die,
Batteries fail and your heart stops
Crippling your limbs,
The world’s a blur.

Where did passion go?
Whatever happened to motivation,
Inspiration,
And fun?

They walked away,
Took the flame with them,
But left you burning,
Sizzling
And crumbling into a dead ash.

But the phoenix shall rise
From burn-out
And fly once more –
One day
Some day
Any day now…
