(4/6/15)


it hurts

it really
hurts

I know
that it's
nothing close
to true
torture

true
agony

no one
is hacking off
my limbs

shocking me
repeatedly
with a cattle
prod

setting
me
afire

but this
throbbing
in my head
is inescapable

I do have
the comfort
of knowing
that it will
eventually
pass

but
for many hours
it hasn't
subsided
in the least

the pain
relievers
have no effect
other than
to make me
nauseous

looking
at me
no one would be
able to detect
anything amiss

so complaints
to others
would be pointless

I type
them here
to scream
in my own
pathetic way

hoping
to read this
tomorrow
and laugh
at my ridiculous
lament

once again
able
to walk
in the sun
