Poem: Energy is Gone

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Energy is gone is a poem about how she has no energy today. She doesn't feel like tapping words onto the screen. The weeks events pressed the button on her breaking point when someone hit her vehicle and left the scene. She is taking time to revamp, hoping her energy will return.

Energy is Gone

Bones tired and achy,

no energy transpires,

no willingness to tap words onto the screen,

her fuel is nonexistent for today.


Perhaps the week's events

playing havoc on her spirit,

bringing her mood to a dismal low.


Pinching a few extra dollars

for a hefty deductible,

left by a hit and run

to fix damage on her vehicle,

presses the button on her breaking point.


Today she needs to revamp,

relax and breathe life in,

hopefully she’ll gain her strength

to meet those tasks again.

Sometimes you just gotta take a break

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Misbah,

I do like my green decaffeinated tea on those cold mornings but this one is about letting life drain your energy.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Ann,

Than you so much for your kind words about my writing. It touches my heart.

It is slow going today, but at least I am tackling a few projects.

Take care & have a great week.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Peggy,

Thank you.

I am usually able to keep pushing myself, but not this time.

Guess I needed a break.

Have a great week.

Ann Carr from SW England on February 01, 2021:

Yes, Brenda, we all have to relax and recharge from time to time. I've had a few days like that lately - the state of the world suddenly got to me and my motivation vanished. I seem to have drifted through the weekend. But I've managed to sleep better and now I'm refreshed and have a better view of the world and life. It's normal and I suppose we need it - if we were full of energy all the time we'd wear ourselves out much too quickly!

Keep writing your great poetry. You pick up emotions and events that we can all identify with, and that's a great thing to be able to do - you engage your readers.

I hope your week is a good one and full of energy!

Hi Brenda,

I think we can all relate to running on low sometimes. Take care!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Bill,

Thank you for your kind words.

I have always found that my body seems to know more than I do.

Your mentor was right...Listen to your body.

Have a great week.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

John,

Yeppie..I couldn't get motivated.

Guess sometimes this old brain just needs to take a break.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Chitrangada,

Thank you.

You are right, it is a part of life.

I do feel better today.

I just needed to rest up & recharge.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Umesh,

Thank you.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 01, 2021:

Your poems always speak of everyday life and the things most people have experienced. I like that, and I could certainly relate to this one. Listen to your body, my mentor always said. It rarely lies to you.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Vanita,

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding my writing.

I guess I try to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The calendar has turned to February & I am ready to have a great month.

Thank you & take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Vidya,

Thank you.

It's amazing how one gets achy when his body feels drained.

Sleep does help, but like you I think finding something to ease the mind helps...a good book for you...a happy movie for me.

Take care.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 01, 2021:

Rosina,

Thanks.

I do feel a bit better, but I had to wake up for an early appointment...so I think I'll take a nap.

This cold weather just makes you want to climb beneath the covers.

Have a nice day.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on February 01, 2021:

We all feel this lack of energy at certain times, especially when numerous things have been going wrong. It is hard to get motivated. Well done, to even write this, Brenda.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on February 01, 2021:

All I want is 8 hours sleep without disturbance, a hot cup of black tea with milk every 2 hours and 2 cups of green tea a day to regularize my energy.

Having low energy is very common in cold days though

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on January 31, 2021:

Even with your energy gone, you composed something, with which we all can relate. It happens, but is a part of our life.

A good sleep works wonders. Hope you feel better soon, Brenda!

Thank you for sharing.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on January 31, 2021:

Nice one.

Vanita Thakkar on January 31, 2021:

You beautifully poetize everything, including stress, distress, sorrows and joys, and of course hope!! In your expressions of feeling lowest on energy, is your search for hope and energy. And they are definitely there within.

Take rest and you will be refueled. Take care. Wish you a Happy February !! Best wishes and regards to you.

VIDYA D SAGAR on January 31, 2021:

Hi Brenda, a very realistic poem. I have been there too, feeling drained and aching. Sleep is the best recourse, we revamp and are ready to face life's challenges again. My favorite go to is a good book to lift the spirits up. Take care and have a great week.

Rosina S Khan on January 31, 2021:

Yes, take rest and relax. Hopefully you will get your energy back. Have a good night. God bless!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 31, 2021:

Dora,

Thank you.

I am so glad there is hope.

I am sure I will feel better soon.

I am getting a little energy now, but alas it is almost bedtime.

Take care & thank you.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 31, 2021:

Been there where energy is a past experience. Thank God for hope. It fuels the desire to begin again.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 31, 2021:

Alyssa,

Thank you.

I am looking forward to February.

I wonder if the ground hog will see he's shadow.

I would love a hot bath but I am at my boyfriend's house & he does not have onr.

The roads are snow covered & it'sa bit nasty. ..so it's just pajamas and taking it easy.

I think it is needed once in awhile to just do nothing.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 31, 2021:

Ruby,

Thanks for commenting.

Yes, someone was nice enough to back into my car and just leave.

No note...no nothing.

Now I have to pay deductible to get it fixed.

That happened mid week or so, I will be getting it fixed next week if all goes as planned.

But today. I guess between the weather & life, I just needed a break.

Take care & have a great week.

Alyssa from Ohio on January 31, 2021:

I feel this deep in my soul, Brenda! After a chaotic week with everyone's routine and schedule disrupted, I'm ready for sleeping in, cozying up with a hot mug of coffee, and losing myself in a good book.

I hope you have a better week as we ring in February. Take care!

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 31, 2021:

Pamela,

Thanks.

I just have absolutely no energy today.

I'm hoping it's just from being overwhelmed this week.

I did manage to finish one project by tapping send.

I certainly hope this next week is better.

It is snowing & my car didn't even get cleaned off today.

It's a day for pj's.

Take care.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on January 31, 2021:

I recognize that feeling of being totaling zapped of strength. My husband and I just had this type of week.

It seemed like everything was tougher than it should have been. I think of myself as a tough person, but this week i was not so easy.

I guess we all reach that breaking point, and this poem spells that out beautifully. I hope next week is better for you and me too! Take care, Brenda! I think of you so often.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on January 31, 2021:

Funny how energy lags when something goes wrong, esp. if we're innocent. I hope this didn't happen to you?
