Living too fast

I've been running on empty

So I use a pick me up

It is keeping me going

It refills the empty cup

And it worked well for a while 

Allowed me to continue 

But I always needed more

So I could keep getting through

And finally on one night 

I overstepped my limit

My heart fluttered way too fast

Skin clammy, urge to vomit

So I went home and got rest

Knowing it was for the best

Stayed away since that harsh night

No need to refight that fight
