Day of a Migraine

Day of a Migraine

The dark is my friend
When the monster’s let in
And the light is my enemy of fright

The grip of the pain
As the pounding sustains
Tightens my head like a vice

It won’t loosen its hold
As I welcome the cold
All I want is a big, bag of ice

All my senses are heightened
I’m tired and frightened
My head feels ripped up and torn

I finally fell asleep
Please, don’t make a peep
I can hear a pin drop to the floor

Now that I’m dreaming
The nightmare is leaving
And all I can hope is no more

I can hear the birds singing
The nightmare is lingering
The light doesn’t hurt anymore.

~ Freyja

You may or may not have read in the About Mesection, that I suffer with daily migraines. They began when I was 8 years old but at 27, they became daily. However, I finally found a procedure that allows me to go a full year, practically migraine free. After 16 years of daily pain, it gave me, and my husband, our life back.
