Loss and Laughter

It’s so good

That she remembers how to laugh

Even when the laughter

Can’t reach

her eyes.

  1. Beautiful piece, KaylaAnn. It reminds us that not everyone who laughs with us, or smiles at us, is genuinely happy. It might only be a facade. For all we know, they might be suffering from so much pain, but choose not to show it.

    1. Indeed Ethan. That sentiment is definitely involved in the emotion of the poem. It’s not even so much trying to be brave, but being brave and being happy while that bravery and happiness is not enough to overcome sorrow and loss.
