Leaving My Grain Charred

Like the wind that gracefully sways the long golden wheat
Side to side, forward and back, let’s call it a dance of life
Sunny days it stands still, the wind must be taking a break
The peace so tranquil, happy dreams take part
It does wake up, on the wrong side of bed
A feeling of sadness the color grey clouds the head
It starts with a weight
Placed at the back of the neck
Like carrying a load
That’s about to break the back
Just then, I know, hell is coming
For a fight…
Jungle drums beating along the spine
Waves of pain shoot into the eyes
Toes curl, scraping nails into the floor
Shoulders slump forward as I drop to the pillow
That is the only shield I have to protect
It’s worn fibers, still, the steel of a helmet
Muster up the strength to get ready
Drugs, the only weapon to force a charge
Medicated and Vegetated
Man made crystals and God made weed
“In God We Trust” is all we need
The pain is winning with flurries
Fighting back and losing
The screams help to release but fails every time
The hours climb, ticking the clock
Rolling and rolling the air rocks
As every sound heard pierces the ear
A fist to the body as I throw up
The wind is now twisting
A tornado in my belly makes more bile
Shoot from my mouth
I wrap that pillow around my head
I hold it hard with all my might
I fight and fight with happy visions
The sun, the stars, the moon and all of life
Loves and Loses, another part of it
I fight with all my breath
Blowing out the flames
That burn in my head
After 36 hours
The fields of my body, burnt
The wheat arches over defeated
The head, like a seed bursted
Leaving my grain charred

  1. I’m liking in solidarity. I’ve had migraines since I was a toddler and have had that look – eyes like two pee holed in the snow.
    Have you tried Maxalt? It is a miracle for migraine.
