Energy by Jordan Taylor Dubin

That one day
Passing you by
Racing down the highway
Yet your feet move in a crawl
Any ounce of energy has escaped
What I fight to do
Gasping for air
Grabbing at what’s left
The gaping hole of misery
Everything feels so big
And I feel so small

Don’t tell me
That I can replenish
My energy
Like water in a dry mouth
Just take a sip

Stop treating me
Like my energy
Is all in my breath
You should fine by now

Fuck off
If you only knew
How much energy was required
To just handle you
