Laughing, makes for
no break to smile
a quiet smile
when she used to,
when I wanted to,
She used to laugh
at my jokes, making me
make her laugh again,
without stop
wanting her to
waiting for her to,
We laughed until
our sides hurt,
breaking the distance
the awkward silence
between us, two
I wanted to see her
a smile, no less, no more

Just a smile,
when the laughter died out
and her Cheshire Cat smile

remained on my lips…
