Migraine Haiku-The Sequel

who is this stranger
walking in my shoes each day
migraine for a crown

pain transforms my words
thin wisps of dark filaments
floating in my eyes

a toxic harpy
she tries to bite my head off
co-worker from hell

pain flutters its wings
its constant chirping so loud
a bird on the head

I lurch and stagger
pain brain sloshes in my head
zombie in training

migraines steal my words
and sends them to outer space
leaving me speechless

A friend forwarded me your page after I wrote a migraine haiku today. So I offer you mine. (Less eloquent, to be sure.):

Tylenol creeps in.
I am waiting on the couch.
Time to cab to work.
