Disillusioned and disaffected

Life drags by and you feel rejected

No cause or reason that can be explained

Just a mental state that leaves you pained

Not unhappy and far from sad

Just not bothered and less than glad

Almost tired while fully awake

A lethargy thats so hard to shake

It’s not because of where you happen to be

Or even due to the people you see

Nothing can help to lighten your mood

Or even help to shift the blues

The day rolls on and you hope for bed

Just a place to lift the burden from your head

A chance to sleep and leave the day behind

After all the problem was just in your mind

But when it’s gone you forget it was ever there

You wake in the morning and breathe the clear air

Like a bad dream you can barely remember

It’s now nothing but fragments and embers
