Pain Laughter

Laughter through pain-
A game we play;
A smile on our face,
So we see the smile on theirs

Are we so important,
That they can’t see us frown?
Are they so important,
That we can’t see them frown?

Pain through laughter
We bear
A pain in our laughter
Lest there be in theirs.

When I smile
Because I want to
When I cry
Because I want to
When I let
You see my pain and my laughter
In its entirety, like I do,
But never a farcical hybrid of both
For whatsoever reason,
You become a friend.
