Having felt a sense of dismay at today’s prompt word of “laughter”, with my mood being far from jolly right now, I messaged a friend who helpfully wrote the following…
Turn that laughter upside down,
You’re not supposed to be a clown,
No splitting sides,
No roars or peels,
Embrace misery and how it feels,
Promoting happiness spreads false hope,
It’s far more fulfilling to sit and mope.

I’m not sure I can compete 😀
But I’ll try my very best to be happy and jolly and poetic, despite my inner darkness fighting to take over…
The Lights in your Eyes
The lights in your eyes
sparkle like stars in the sky
Your smile brightens my day
like the crescent moon
casting a shimmering glow across the dark of night
Your laughter rings in my ears
like the sound of church bells on our wedding day
Your gentle touch
caresses my skin like a warm summer breeze
and washes over me like waves lapping on a sandy beach
