I Fought My Pillow

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Pillow Fight

Pillow Fight

Cold sweats

Mind not at rest

I toss and turn

as the moon and stars burn

I get up, look through the window

I go back, I fluff the pillow

I am frustrated, i just cant sleep

i blame my pillow, so I give it a beat

I grab it and give it a choke hold

Then I pound it, stuffed it into a hole.

I toss it to the floor

Gave it a body slam, it got tore.

I lifted it and punched it in the gut

For not making me sleep as much

I tossed it across the room

By then the pillow knew it was doom


I grabbed it and summoned hell fire

My pillow was now deflated, almost expired

I was tired and weary from the pillow ordeal.

But it was a battle, feather against steel.

I had knocked the stuffings out that guy

And like a wimp my pillow was, just laid their and cried

My mind was settled, now my meditation saw jumping sheep

I dragged my self to bed, and i was sound asleep.

Full on draws for both of us, and to sleep a bit late :-) You bring joy.

Last night the boy insisted that we fight our pillows. You made an impact.

Most excellent. Especially when it is too hot in the summer. But my boy says that is because my head is too fat.
