Missing

All those laughs I have been missing
Why is my life so serious?
A world wrapped, in so much happy
Should make my mind delirious 

I take myself too serious
All those laughs I have been missing
It seems too funny I'm immune
For those laughs my soul is wishing

A sense of humor hidden deep
It bubbles to the very top
All those laughs I have been missing
I laugh and laugh and can not stop

The years of laughter I saved up
On my funny bone they're kissing
I try and try and can not stop
All those laughs I have been missing


Inspired after reading Wayland Bunch's mistletoe Quatern.

    This reminds me so much of my own style; I enjoyed and appreciate this piece very much. It feels like something I would have written, also. Just absolutely loved this poem, Richard; kudos! Excellent work :)

    Yes, laughter lightens the heart. Shines a little light into the dark places.

    I very much enjoy laughter. There is little in life that should be taken to seriously. Thanks for listening to the show and for your always thoughtful comments.

    Can you write me a prescription? Tickling sounds like a lot of fun.

    last night was boring. i had no one to make laugh. but the night before i was the star attraction. laughter is the best. and i found your "d" playing out in the parking lot. it should change that shoul into should. at first i thought it was sheol which i'm sure is not what you ment.

    You are spot on, and A very good poem as well. I ended up liking this form, but actually found it very hard at first. I don't remember, sometimes I forgot how to count syllables haha, or think I forgot that it had to be eight, but a great repetitive form. I soon wish to revisit the Terzanelle, a form you interested me with.

    (cont) The good think is that it doesn't require rhyme at all, but of course I've said I find that boring lol. If you're not gonna rhyme, free verse it is haha, or another one of those hundred forms that don't require rhyme, but free verse means I can just write any old thing. Thanks for your comments and replies, yes my suggestions were offered in humor and you definitely didn't need them. Great work here.

    Belly laughs, as stated below, are the only "ab workouts" I'll ever need. Very, very well stated!

    With the size of my belly I get an excellent workout when I laugh.

    There's nothing like pure genuine laughter. Am I right? Great poem, Richard.
