just everyday burnout

i’m so tired 
the warmth in me is seeping from my soul
i just wanted to be admired
and reach that everlasting goal
but i burned out
and the audience still thinks i’m flowing tall
i wish they would let me back out
oh i just want to fall
because my candle is hollow now
and my wick is barely holding on
why can’t y’all see how
my flame is all ready gone
