Days Like Today

Days like today make it hard to hold my head up, hard to be strong. Nothing goes right, and there is still no one to come home to and vent about days like today. There is no one to hold me and console away the stress and wear of days like today. Days like today make it hard not to pick up the phone to find that lost comfort in a familiar voice. My entire body aches and I am exhausted, but my mind is relentless on days like today. Days like today, nothing from the past feels as important as my desire to have strong arms wrapped around me and fingers in my hair. It’s hard to find distractions on days like today.
