Flash Fiction Friday - #6


Drip.
Drop.
Flip.
Flop.
It's raining outside
and I can't sleep.

Toss.
Turn.
Stomach churns.
I feel like ants are crawling on me!

Jump up.
Lay down.
Since when did silence get so loud?

Uh, oh!
Way to go!
I didn't take my meds
before my pillow met my head!

Flip.
Flop.
A pill,

POP!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Flash Fiction Friday
Every Friday, I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less.
If you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...
post your story and report to the boss

I hate when I cannot go to sleep and need to take my anti depressants to do so because I realize it too late to make any difference in the sleep I need and don't get.

The rain then becomes water torture.

Very Rhythmic & very expressive! That is exactly how it is!

Hehehe it sounds somewhat similar to the Dr. Seuss books I've been reading to Sophia. Well, except for the meds part. ;-)

Great 55!
