Some weeks I just wish I could hibernate

Last week…

Lets just say I’ve had better weeks.

It started with a headache.

A thumping as regular as a heartbeat behind my right eye,

It whispered at first,

a half formed thought,

then it screamed its insistence to be heard.

I reached for the handle that would take it away

and palmed the white pill,

swallowing in one go.

It whispered.

I went to work.

I tried to keep up, I ran

but in truth I stumbled.

Lying down, my thumping subsided.

The heartbeat stuttering and then dying.

My migraine flat-lined and I slept.

I didn’t mean this to be a poem. It just happened when I tried to write for the daily prompt – obstacle course. Enjoy. 🙂
