Laugh Alone

I Laugh, Alone


Do you remember when

Dot dot dot


I fill in the blanks

Left to laugh alone


The smile on my face is for both of us

But only I understand its sadness

Yours is a plastic smile

A mask


It cuts deep to see you try

Even deeper when you don’t


A shrug

Dismissed in a moment

Cut to the quick


But who do I tell?

Who will remember?


There is only one thing to do

And to it, I heartily subscribe


I will laugh.


For both of us.
