Today’s Words

Did not come easy.
It is not easy to capture
Lightning in a bottle,
To try and reproduce on a page
The cascading, turbulent mix of emotions
That real life experiences can bring.
On days like this
Words, at best, will only serve as signposts,
Only pointing back to a time
To which we cannot return.
This writer will weep for his readers
For they will never truly know his pain
Or share his joy.
Today’s words did not come easy.
Nothing seemed to do justice
Nothing seemed to carry weight.
In the end, the only thing that could be written
Was just to say how
Today’s words did not come easy.
