Learning To Laugh... Again - Poem by fool of forgiveness

The hardship is behind me
The tears have been shed
The shell is no longer closed....
But I’ve forgotten to laugh, again.

What is laughing?
I haven’t heard it from my lips
Since the numb pain
and the silent loneliness....

..... no, that wasn’t genuine
I’ve forgotten my real smile
I can’t remember the last time
That it crossed my dial.

So I’m starting again
From square one
And I’m willing to learn
How to laugh again....
