Simple Words

I majored in English in college.  I am a former English teacher, and yes I consider myself a writer.
I have a pretty extensive vocabulary, and I admit I am talented at using words.  I use words to express love and gratitude, to soothe, and to self-soothe.

When I am writing I spend time cultivating my words, stressing over how to construct sentences and paragraphs to convey my feelings.

But in some instances, like today, the third day after my mother's death; only the simplest words and phrases can express this very primal and visceral pain.

I love her.
I miss her.
She is gone.
