Running On Empty

Running On Empty

Miles mean nothing
anymore and

You’re gauging life
by joy you leach
from dreams.

Getting tired you’re
losing steam, but
It’s when you’re
running on empty
when you’ve got
to burn the most

you’ve got to flee
while there’s still
a part of you

that’s worth



It’s when you think you’ve got nothing left that you’ve got to keep going. And faster than you’ve ever moved before.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little scrap I posted above. It’s not a completed work but rather more of an idea I am toying with. Still, I thought it was one of those worth the posting.

Anywho, here’s to hoping your work day flies by and that you’re home safe and sound before ya know it.

  1. I ran out of empty some time back. Now I’m waiting for the tow truck to cart me off to the Knackers’ Yard.

  2. I am having a pretty rough day, while already in a bit of a rough patch so when I saw your post now it made me feel better. Thanks for that. You, too, are wished a great day, or even a semi-great day if that’s what will get you by….

    1. Thank you! And ty for catching that. I should have the title of typo queen, honestly. You should see a word document after I’ve had a go at it. All red dashes and green squiggles šŸ˜‰
