Larvae / Worm / or Nematode ?

I found two of these worms (or whatever they are) wiggling/ crawling on my tomato plant outside at night tonight when it was moderately humid - in my garden bed - they both were around the fruit stems of green tomato's growing. I am in Florida so it is fairly warm out now.

The head appears to be the thinner pointed end - that is the part which was leading and feeling ahead - I let them crawl onto a leaf I held to get them off the tomato plant, then I took pics then burned them.

- the pic is enlarged (to the human eye it actually appears a lot smaller and thinner than the photo might lead on); I included the video to demonstrate.

So, can anyone please tell me what this creature is?
