Norvasc was working, sort of. and then 3 headaches. and the last 2 shots of Imitrex. and a bad toothache, to add insult to injury. the dentist isn't open for hours, and i'm so tired. headache, toothache, no sleep. i think i'm dying. so i wrote some. see how this tastes on the tip of your tongue, whispered to yourself.

When the shadows go bad
And the phantoms dance
The right hand shakes
And the left hand trembles
My attention shifts
From the world to the room
That’s closing in and
The cube comes down
And closes shut
With a resounding bang
That vibrates the temples
And the air shatters
As the demon claws
And digs the veins
And wounds the flesh
And squeezes the eye
And singes the muscle
And if the bone would just
It would ease the
But there’s no rest for me
In the inky darkness
I’ve got to hold on
Just a little longer
The sun’s coming up
I shake in my bed
And I’m just so tired
And I can’t fall asleep
With the deafening sound
Of a thousand screams
A choir of razors
In my head
And I must hold on
