MIGRAINE

MIGRAINE


 
You
 
deliverer of pain beyond normal knowing.

You who seize me by the temples

to pull me through the portholes of death!

I am pulled like a babe being sucked
 
through the birthing tunnel,
 
propelled in exceeding pain

and held prisoner by the bluntness

of the cold, steel forceps.

Prisoner with life forces being squeezed
 
right out of / right into
 
the swallowing darkness.
 
Where even the palest shard of light
 
is excruciatingly painful.

Where the eyes refuse to open

in the sea of green nausea,
 
and still you push me even further,

beyond my ability and toward the light.

I am in the delivery room, falling into space
 
within the brightness, coming as daggers

through my pupils to torment me.
 
My body heaves as I am hurled over the precipice
 
not able to know whether the other side
 
holds life, or death.
 
I suck a breath and pray for mercy.
