Cherita: Migraine


Light shatters


behind the lids

a broken filament, blinking.


Migraine shivers twitch

vision like funfair lights

in an electric storm.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I hope you are just writing about a migraine. Are you a sufferer I empathise they are the pits. If you are suffering I hope you are better soon. You have described it perfectly.💜💜💜

    1. I had a foul migraine yesterday and this afternoon started a new one with an aura. At least with the aura I’m forewarned and can pop a pill as soon as the first throb hits. Early night tonight.
