It had a phantasmagoric feel,
an atmospheric aura so unreal
this pain reeling from within
a less than fantastic outward whim
to put a hammer to my tooth
and slam impulsiveness uncouth.
Instead I had to sit and wait,
only in fantasy did my ache abate.
Inspiration~ Real Toads: A Word with Laurie
Yes! In the end you will be glad the whim was "less than fantastic."
Here's to being pain free.
oh dang...think i told you they had to crack one of my molars in half with a pry bar because of my twisted roots...i dont envy you...but i hope you are feeling better...fun word too...smiles.
Hope you feel better soon!!
I hope your pain soon doesn't fit that word but is instead fitting the word null.
Laurie, your poem made your pain seem extremely real and showed its intensity. Ouch!
Yeah...I always ask for the gas, too! That opening couplet really rolls off the tongue. I just like the sound of it.
What a pain~literally! At least you were able to take it and mold it into an awesome poem!
wow, I can feel your pain in that, hope it passes quicklyxxx
Ooo, you capture it brightly, Laurie...such sharp and charged pain you describe. I hope that it's lots better. ♥
My teeth have sympathy pains! Feel better soon!
Sounds like a killer tooth ache! Great write but sorry about the pain!
Nothing worse than a tooth ache, unless it is two teeth aching relentlessly.
Thanks for sharing.
I know...this pain! I am sorry you have been hurting~ I hope you are feeling better! I am going to try to come up with something tomorrow!
Clever prompt! :D I will miss you on RT! (((hugs)))
I hope you derived a few moments' pleasure when writing this poem :) Wish you a speedy recovery!
Even pain can inspire good poetry.
Wow, sounds like the pain took you took another world; one we don't want to be in but all go there sometime. I'm glad you got a poem out of the pain. That's a little payoff. :)
I'm glad the hammer wasn't real. I've often thought of it as a solution to one thing and another, but haven't followed through, and nor did you, thank goodness.
Oh my...I know that pain..you have created words that make me feel the pain. I great Job!
tooth pain prompted a great little ditty, here, Laurie!
