A Shift

A shift can be
physical or mental
both create a lull.

Subject to one such
I turn inactive
do not try.

The period, a fortnight
makes me lose cheer.
I abstain from matters dear.

Away from the bustle,
confined to specifics
am more of a relic.

Unable to renounce
I return to the original.
Alas! now in centre of a trial.
