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.
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. 🙂
