Laugh. It’s Ok.

Laughing wholeheartedly
is like being carried away with the wind.
It is the calm after a bad day.
Everything negative just melts away
yet not enough people experience
that true, no-holding-back, letting go feeling.

I don’t know why so many send
LOLs with smirks on their faces.

Tears with Laughter

Sometimes in the middle
of one of my crying escapades
my mind gets diverted
to livelier moments.

My mood automatically changes,
the tears dry up
and I start smiling
from ear to ear
as if the gut wrenching pain
wasn’t just tearing and twisting
my insides into pieces
just a few moments before.
