On the side of dark: Then there are the lows, the lower lows, and the lowest of lows.
Creativity can be an addiction.
— Robin Williams
What happens when you feel that your creativity and grace disappeared, not to be found ever again? There is no faking(acting) a fix. No, the quick fix of drugs and alcohol can’t solve the problem, either.

nothing left to lose.
a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement.

The second time, she had seen enough.
