laughing on my own//a poem

from the poember prompt “the last time you laughed”

the thing is,
right now I’m locked down at home and so
it feels like all of the laughs are alone all the time which
would be quite lonely if you think about it
(it is) but
I also like my own brain (and it’s lonely) and
the small beings who used to drive me insane (still do) amuse me more day on day and
the thing is,
you’d think I was lonely (I am) but I think
I’m falling in love with my own laugh too.
