I can’t remember, or even imagine, what it feels like to not be in pain.

The thing about my pain is: I worry

I can’t remember what it’s like to not have a headache:

that this is the norm

I’ve had the same headache for over a decade.

for everyone

Some days it’s quieter

that everybody

(dull thuds along historic skull fractures)

feels the same

Some days it’s deafening

living life in constant pain

(crushing neuralgia that laughs at painkillers)

that only I can’t handle it

But it’s always, always there.

and only I complain.

Tell me what you think!
