My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

September 29, 2010 “night pains”

For One Shot Wednesday

on a suggestion from my friend, Patti

“night pains”

I rose from my bed

without clearing my head

and went shuffling across the floor

it was dark as could be

but I needed to pee

simply thinking of nothing more

like a drunk on a boat,

my mind was afloat

I swayed back and forth, to and fro

quiet as a thief

I sought my relief

when suddenly…I STUMPED MY DAMNED TOE!

  2. Oh, this was great! And “OUCH!” – that toe stumble in the sleep-walking-to-pee state is horrible! This had great rythym and flow (no pun intended!)

    And that photo cracked me up – I always thought toes had attitude – lol!

  11. I can totally relate to this one, Tracy.

    Many’s the time I’ve made that dark, wobbling, half-asleep trip to the bathroom.

    And yes, I’ve even stubbed my toe on occasion – which wakes you up in the most unpleasant way – AND makes it so difficult to drift back off to sleep, with your toe throbbing.

    • Indeed, my friend 🙂 Thanks for giving your time to read and comment. Watch your step now…..

      October 1, 2010 at 2:42 am

  12. Ouch! I love the drunk on the boat image combined with the urgency of a full midnight bladder

    You make smile and that’s something I was lacking!

    September 29, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    • Glad I brought a smile to your Lovely face, Annie 🙂

      October 1, 2010 at 2:43 am

  13. Hooray! And see? Big hit all around.(Especially for your poor toe!)

    September 29, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    • Ha Ha, Patti 🙂 I’m glad you liked it…I need to listen to you more often, huh?

      October 1, 2010 at 2:44 am

  14. Ouch!
    Yup … agreed. Cute toes.
    Kudos to you and to “contributors” Amanda and Patti.

    This one is just pure fun, Tracy. Love it …

    • Seems like I need an entire team just to write a poem LOL…but wouldn’t trade them for anything 🙂 Thanks, Jamie

      October 1, 2010 at 2:46 am

  15. YEOW!! That must’ve hurt!!! And I could almost hear you wince!!

    Cute one, Tracy!! Those toes look cross.. they are probably cribbing about those late-night pee trips! 🙂 What a bother! 😉
    Fun read, friend! Very different from your love poems 🙂

    September 30, 2010 at 3:03 am

    • Tru dat, K 🙂 Had to be dared by Patti to do something different, and then I still wrote about my pain LOL Thanks for coming by, Kavita…you are a gem 🙂
