Best Therapy

You are my
favorite frivolous expense of the heart.
You that giggles my cold blood warm again.
You that dances in the storm drain of my sorrows
and rides along my harsh history as if it were
an exciting rollercoaster in what you tease
to be the amusement park of my family.

Your laughter is a luxury to me.
Your entertaining, twisting way of seeing
is the best of all the best therapies.
