Migraine Monster

Catherine Webb

A Pulsating, pounding villain protruding in my life Filling each and every moment with painful strife

Invisibly invading my mind and sanity with senseless anguish Trying anything and everything to make it extinguish

Its fingers greedily gouge into every crevice of my brain Nerves and Nausea add to the sickening strain

Ordinary life ceases to exist with this monster's hounding Using its fist to keep on pounding and pounding

Seconds, minutes, and hours darkly drone on with no relief Nothing about the work of this evil foe is brief

Each time the invasion ends, I have only one thing to say How can I keep this frightful wicked fiend at bay?
