More Migraine Haikus

A King Kong meegrain
Has sat itself on my head
I can’t even breathe

My brain burns brightly
Even the slightest touch
Butterflies of pain

Big bad migraine pain
Rears its ugly monstrous head
Tries to eat me whole

My off kilter world
Tilts to the side due to pain
Rocks don’t even help

Alien lasers
Blast my brain, a molten mess
Clean up on aisle four

My brain craves control
Holding me hostage in pain
Loves to turn the screws

Hello! I saw on Twitter that you were dreading going to work and facing coworkers after being out sick. Why is that? Do they judge you or think you're faking it since migraine is somewhat an invisible illness? Just curious. My coworkers are very supportive, but sometimes I feel like maybe they think I'm a little lazy. My husband feels that way too. Ugh.

Hang in there, I hope work is bearable for you today! :)

Awesome haiku. I think it's great to use your creativity to express your pain (physical and emotional).
