Laugh Out Loud

Laugh out loud with me
Not just any kind of laugh
Laugh out loud hard, please

The kind of laugh you cry from
Where your face smiles
So very hard you're done

You grab your tummy
Cause it feels so good inside
It's just that funny

Laugh till you can't stand up straight
Until your knees buckle
This is a laughing hard fate

Rolling on the floor
Where this laughter takes you
Laughing from your core

A good old fashion hard laugh
What I am asking
You to give yourself and have

Laugh out loud with me
Not just any kind of laugh
Laugh out loud hard, please

Review Request (Intensity): 
Please use care (this is a sensitive subject for me, do not critique harshly)
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
I was having a really good day and I wanted to share it with the world when I wrote this. I know it is not a strong poem but this was how I was feeling at the moment. I would like to make it better though and am struggling with that. Please help.

A nice invitation and theme bossylady. I like it the way you did it, but as you asked for help, I would suggest some culling here and there if you don't mind

Laugh out loud with me
 The kind of laugh you cry from
 Where your face smiles,
You grab your tummy,
 Cause it feels so good inside
and funny

Laugh till you can't stand up straight
 Until your knees buckle
 and you roll on the floor
 Where this laughter takes you
   from your core

A good old fashion hard laugh
 What I am asking
 You to give yourself and have
 just any kind of laugh
 
Laugh out loud hard.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for sharing.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

I like your rewrite, but I think part of what makes it fun is the rhyme that I have tried to have in the poem. It makes it almost sound like a song to me. Thank you I will look and see about some of the changes you made though

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,

Oh I so love this poem it brings back memories for me - I had a fantastic relationship with my younger brother ( who is now 55 ). We often laughed till be cried, rolling on the floor clutching our tummies. Sad to say those days have gone and I haven't laughed like that for a long time. I'm happy that you reawoke those memories within me - they are indeed cheerished memories. True proper laughter is an amazing tonic and a gift. I smiled all the way through this delightful poem.

Thanks for sharing

Love Mand xxxxx

I am so glad this poem took you to a happy place thank you so much
