Gone too long

Updated: Jul 2, 2021

Trying too decide what to say,

Trying to find the right words,

The right flavor,

Set the right tone.

But the words don’t come as easy

The thoughts not as clear,

The flavor not as definitive

Images not as compelling –

I guess I’ve been gone too long.

It’s not that there is nothing to say

Lord knows the world is just as messed up

as it was when last we spoke.

But the words don’t come quite as easy,
