I’m laughing too

I’m laughing too

in The heights

It was funny

When you asked me how I could be anxious

“It’s supposed to be fun”

“It’s supposed to be relaxing”

“Lighten up”

 

It was funny

How I couldn’t talk to them

And my face was red

And I was short of breath

And my stomach fluttered

And my thoughts trapped me

 

It was funny

Don’t you see me laughing?

 

It was funny

When you told me

That my feelings are a joke

And then expected me to laugh along

I am laughing

Is this not light-hearted enough for you?

 

Behind my smile hides

Trembling hands

A tightness in my chest

A racing pulse

Whirring thoughts

Is that not what you wanted?

 

It was funny

When I thought to myself later

That this is why I don’t tell you

Because you think it’s a joke

And then you ask me why I’m upset

I’m not upset

Don’t you see me laughing?

 

It’s funny

How I have to hide my feelings

How I have to act like I’m having fun

So no one will feel bad

No one will laugh at me

No one will expect me to change

Because look at me smiling

Everything is fine

I’m laughing too

this was honestly not the theme I expected from the title, but it is a very real and well-written poem nonetheless.
