Boredom

Bored adjective.

feeling weary and impatient because one is unoccupied or lacks interest in one’s current activity.

Boredom noun

the state of feeling bored.

***

Mistaken for laziness,

Sometimes also for indifference,

Maybe even drowsiness,

But the thing is,

They’re mere by-products

of an emotion,

widely experienced,

But never clearly understood.

Lurking in bodies and minds,

it shows up when an activity or a person,

seems uninteresting.

Like someone talking and talking without listening,

or an act that involves work we don’t want to engage in.

Like, maybe something you’re feeling right now too?
