Oh the pain! slowly but surely
Drilling in my head, giving me no rest
Blurred vision, tears flowing down freely
My cheek on fire, I'm beyond stressed.

Oh the pain! It's like a nasty punch,
Torture! can't sleep, can't think straight,
Tell me, why does it have to hurt so much?
Oh my, look at the time, it's only eight!

Oh the pain! I have a long, long night ahead,
I turn and toss, I wish pain could be kissed
Away, what awaits me later fills me with dread,
But even a tooth fairy needs to go to the dentist.

    Excellent stuff - poetry's tricky enough without a hundred word limit, so double excellent.
