I’m afraid of laughter

it purges me

of so much

sarcasm, relief


emotional inlays


I know not

how to process

remnants of heaviness

to pull a little


my way


tears repel you

authenticity scares

I’m too sharp and raw

the same you last saw

I found nothing worthwhile

to sway


I can’t recall

when did I laugh last


when emojis

shocked by real-ness

slithered away
