Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

Running on empty

The last atom of energy
Is gone
Now
I am running on empty

Feels like floating

Is that the secret formula:
When you give it all
You have the most?
You just feel
Deep inside
Something divine
You host

We humans
So powerful
All
A body, a mind, a soul
We don’t know
What is the goal
Yet
We keep running
Running on empty

I know well the feeling you talk about, dear Vesna. When you feel exhausted and it seems you are floating in the space. You need to rest, to touch the earth, to gain some energy and start running again. Every goal in our life is reached with effort. It seems our life is a continuos run. We can't avoid it. But what would be our life if we don't stop from time to time and look at a landscape or taste a sweet fruit? So, from time to time, I try to stop running and go out looking at the blue sky, breathing deeply, listening to my kids' voice. Then I know I'm ready to run again. :)

Very nice job, as usual, Vesnita. :))
I started missing your poetry.
