Storm Within
by Kathy Lynne Haumann

Throughout the day, I felt kind of good
Being productive, everything’s the way it should
Nothing was out of order, everything was the norm
Little did I know, it was the calm before the storm

The turbulent seas now came along
Nothing was right, it was all so wrong
Then the cloaked stranger with the dagger appeared
To place pain in my head, just as I feared

My words became jumbled, they couldn’t be said
My stomach shut down, I could not be fed
Dizziness, nausea, kept me spinning around
Every little noise became too loud a sound

I ran to my bedroom and shut out the light
I prayed to God, to get me through this night
I lay on the pillow, it cradled my pain
While knives stabbed away, nestled deep in my brain

Wondered did I of how much time was lost
Could I ever recover for what this headache had cost?
How much longer could I suffer this ache?
This porcelain head was about to shatter and break

Desperate and trembling, I ran to my med
The pill I rely on to return to my bed
Just within minutes, the ache melts away
With the migraine now a memory, I start dreaming away…
