TUESDAY NIGHTS EVENTS:

 TUESDAY NIGHT'S EVENTS:
Tuesday was an extremely hot day,
Cool air fan circulating my room.
Way too hot to venture out.
Hoping it would cool down soon.

I went to bed early ,
As thunderstorms were predicted.
It plays havoc with my Epilepsy,
Hoping to sleep through unaffected.

After a few hours I awoken,
Could see no rain had fell.
What happened to the thunder thought I?
Feeling exremely well.

Then "IT HAPPENED".
Lightning flashed across my face.
I put a mask over my eyes.
So the lightning I could erase.

This went on for quite a few hours,
I had to remove the mask.
To see my way to get a drink,
Seemed an endurable task.

Then I ESPIED IT,
On the facing wall.
A spider large as life.
Making an unwelcomed call

I am not a lover of the creatures,
More gloom and doom.
The nightmare for me was evident,
Thunderstorms and spiders together in my room.

I lay there for what seemed like eternity,
Eyes glued to the wall.
To establish the movements of the spider,
In between the flashes of lighning.....not having a ball.

I lost track of the spider,
As an Epiletic seizure came my way.
Quite an eventful night was Tuesday.
Is what I would like to say.

  7. That's a night to forget. That's a scary spider. Lightning flashing outside the windows is scary too. Hope your nights are more gentle from now on.
