Throes Of Headache


Pulse rushing my ears

waves of blood crash down

upon lowered head.

Temples pound to an ocean's beat

angry waves rolling through my brain.

Eyes shut tight against light

which attempts to sneak between

guarded lids in effort to blind.

Lightning bolts pierce my skull

electrically charged volts of agony

course through every cell.

Buried deep in softness of pillow

head in hands

praying for sleep to come

for pain to end.
