300 Random Prompts: Day 15



head cold haikus


Coughing, choking, so much phlegm

A thousand pounds of pressure

Pushing from inside


Heavy eyes struggle

Drooping lids that yearn to close

Even my hair hurts


Slow, plodding movement

I'm better off being still

And watching game shows


Here comes the Nyquil

Bringing the sweetness of sleep

And the promise of rest
