Emotion of Laughter (acrostic poem)

Lost in joy

Absorbed with happiness

Undeniably losing control of my emotions

Genuinely smiling from ear to ear

Happening without notice

Tailor-made for the moment

Easily affecting my body

Refreshing my soul.

Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Gloominess lurks within,

darkness surrounds her soul,

no sunlight peeks

in this depth of hell

that keeps her captive.


She tosses back a cold one

to bury sorrows

as memories plague her thoughts,

when an unkept man, with baggy clothes

speaks to her

like he’s never met a stranger.


He talks of life

like he’s been around a day or two,

spinning his words in a comical way

as he looks at her saying,

“Chin up Buttercup.

You’re boobs aren’t that important.

Let him trip over his own two feet.”


Suddenly she cracks a smile

bursting with laughter,

she sees a glimmer of light

as her soul gains a new perspective.

Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of your heart.

Kitty Laughs

I swear my kitty’s smiling

wearing a grin

on her face,

making me wonder if she’s happy

or if she’s just laughing at me.


As her paws make biscuits on the blanket,

I’m sure my googly eyes and baby talk

makes her wonder

if I've been outside in the sun too long,

since I’m acting a bit like a crazy lady.


But she's my best bud

no matter what I do,

so if she wants to giggle at me,

it’s fine,

cause her playful ways make me chuckle too.

Your house will always be blessed with love, laughter, and friendship if you have a cat.
