“To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain, and play with it!”
~ Charlie Chaplin
I can’t count how many times people have said to me a version of, “You don’t look like you are sick or in pain. You’re always smiling and happy.” This kind of talk makes me wonder if these individuals don’t know that pain and sadness aren’t mutually exclusive. Yes, when the world makes me sad, everything hurts more. But the opposite is also true: smiles, laughter, a generous amount of cackling witchy style (CWS) and pure happiness decrease my pain.
On day 4 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, I wish you to write a poem that shows how an emotion might increase physical pain, and vice versa.
* Leave a link to your poem, as a comment. Include the title of your entry, and the direct link of your post. Example: “NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero”: http://magalyguerrero.com/napowrimo-with-magaly-guerrero-2015/. Visit other Wicked Darlings and comment on their yum. They might visit you in return (it’s politeness spiced up with fun).
* If you use this prompt, please link it to your post. And if you are feeling extra delicious, link your poem to the main entry. Show others where to go. Spread the word. Linking back to the source brings smiles to the faces of baby koalas. Seriously.
This made me laugh like a lunatic. So, of course, I had to share it.
