The sun once my warm bright friend
Now is viewed only from behind dark glasses,
My eyes are but slits, trying to deal with the
ever present glare of ever presentÂ bouncing light,
Everyday noise is now a booming thunderstorm in my head,
Why is everyone talking and moving about so fast,
The yawning has begun, the light show follows as
I fight accepting what is to come- it can’t be, not again,
but it is a definite migraine about to disable me and disrupt my life!
Quickly I panic as I try to reach a safe place for I will be useless in no time.
My thinking is now clouded, my mind races-
did I do something to trigger this one,
how bad is it going to be, how many things will I have to cancel now,
will I ever have a normal life again?
Resigned to do battle I take my medication
and hide from the world til this migraine subsides.
