On The Frontline

On The Frontline

A Poem by therisa
"

Migraine headache, on a long weekend.

"
Once more
It returns
With a pre-emptive attack
Upon waking up.

Each new sound
Is an artillery shell
Lobbed
With pinpoint accuracy
Onto the battlefield.

Blinding me
In a haze
Of intense chronic pain
Over my third eye.

Seeking refuge
In the healing darkness
Of silence
Within my apartment.

Never knowing
When true relief
Will ever come
With a migraine.

As the tears
Stain my face
And pillows.

In leaving me
A widow
On this May
Long weekend.

Unofficial start
To summer
In Canada.
