head in vice

waves of fire engulf me,

then ebb, and I’m left drenched

boiling in my skin

head in vice



I’m home sick today.  This is why.  😦  These debilitating waves have been coming all morning.  It’s horrible.  I was in bed until noon, when the need for pain killer forced me to move.  It is not pretty.  I hope you’re having a much better day!

    Just stumbled here, discovered your blog, only to find you’ve got a headache. Poor dear, do make sure to keep lots of lonelyTylenol handy. I like the bookends of “head in vice” in this poem — I assume this was intentional? Also, I love your picture – great hair, darling! Do drop by sometime for a laugh.
