He laughed

He laughed

A Poem by Green

Because there's times when you just need it


Last night

He came home and

He laughed

And it was like

Nothing was different

And I wasn’t afraid

For 30 seconds

I wasn’t afraid

Because he laughed

And I love his laugh

Because it sounds like

Everything is alright

The story of a vacuous laugh :) I liked it. We live with many imperfections. Perfect world doesn't exist :)

A beautiful short poem, but with so much meaning,

I feel like I know what you mean, and isn't that one of the joys of reading poetry? I think its so cool how you can so simply depict this as if you were just telling it to me.

a quiet moment, what a wonderful painting made from poetry.

Could feel that moment through your words so well... and yes... laughter is like a music.. a beautiful, lifting music that makes us forget the sadness for the moment...

Everybody needs something to laugh at at some point in their lives, especially if somebody is having a bad day. This poem is a concise sweet one. Keep up the good work!

Profound in an axiomatic way. A good reminder of the power of laughter and particular tribute to a particular someone.

I love the way you share your heart with us in this piece.

I'm living in the good ol' south of the US of A. Professionally, I'm an engineer and I guess that means I'm supposed to know things. I don't always. I write because I can, and because I can write word.. more..
