When a candle burns out, there's nothing left. No light, no fire, no wax, no energy. To be burned out means, to have exhausted all your energy.
EX: Studying burns me out.
EX: That run we had the morning really burned us out.
EX: I'm burned out! I've been working since 7 this morning.
EX: Talking to Sam really burns me out. All Sam does is talk, talk, talk.
EX: If you don't take a break, you're going to burn out!
Note, burned is also spelled burnt. :wink:
