Laughing Matter

letting go
I ask myself…
         of what?
love? Friendship?
  neither one
        existed.

   I laugh, till my
       belly cramps
I’ll laugh
   everyday
      through long
winding roads, over
  steep hills of
      Green, buttercup
scattered
   and under dark
        rocky bridges
of my life.

love lost?
   no never,‘twas
       love deceived
denied of truth
and forever
    between sunrise
and sunrise

  will I be amused?
indeed yes,
      till the day

I expire.

Very, very well said, dreamer. Some things can best be considered just amusing, even though we smile with tear-filled eyes.

DarkAngel~
I really like this.
Feels like someone has shed the
cloak of heartbreak and can now
begin to frolic ...

'forever
    between sunrise
and sunrise'

I liked the strength in this, and really laughter and tears are so similar in many ways...they release.  Wonderful poem!

Laughter is to Tears as a Rainbow is to Rain.  You captured the style and grace that only you can.  Well done!!
