Then Came The Laughter
by: JP Leddy
It swallowed my breath as it forged through my body
Rapturously overtaking my muscles convulsively
My heart pounding in octaves higher and higher
As I felt light headed and light footed where gravity lost power
My mouth forced opened as air rushed out with angel force
Then came the laughter , followed by more, and then the joy
Submittted to Thursday’s Poets Rally Week 39

I really enjoyed this! I’ve found that when I’m going through my worst periods, laughter is indeed the best medicine, They should have said, “Laughing all day, keeps the doctor away!”
Very good piece. May your day be wonderfully blessed.
I am glad you like this!
