5/21/2013 Writing Prompt

popping pain killers like candy (or some other whatsis)

Upon scheduling of this writing prompt, I am entering into day 4 of a migraine. Nothing quite like this head-pain to completely zap the writing motivation. Either way, carry on!

As always, I do love a link to your work!

Repeat

It begins as a soft ache
mouth tinged with the taste of metal
swelling upward from my jaw – covering the entire side of my face

pre-mature sunshine bliss fading
another afternoon of watering eyes,
distorted tongues and the high pitched grinding in my ears.

I would pray for silence
if I thought it would do any good.

Again I awake to this

Throbbing made worse by waking,
movement,
breathing.

If yesterday multiple attempts were made,
what of today?
Again I am looking for the cause, the reason.

Unable to relieve this menace by absence –
remaining solution: to excise a portion of day.
more restlessness, discomfort, chest tension and despair.

A series more of unrelated side effects:
loss of motivation,
sleep deprivation,
jumbled communication.

Is it in sight?
