I feel like I have a spike
That's been driven into my head
If this pain doesn't end soon
I'm going to go home to bed

My concentration is poor
I can't hear a single thing
It began as a strumming 
Now I'm really suffering

I tried to take an aspirin 
In the hopes that it would work
Because when I'm not happy
I can turn into a jerk

Nothing seems to be working
My pain is escalating
It's hard to know what to do
The feeling is frustrating 

I look into the mirror
Comb aside all of my hair
Much to my own amazement
There is a spike stuck in there

Dedicated to my friend Gary who suffers from constant migraines. Coincidently
he has a friend who literally had a spike shot into his head an survived.

    thanks Harry I had a splitting headache that day so couldn't think of anything else to write in the moment.

    Until I read the dedication line, I have to admit I chuckled through it, but migraines are no laughing matter!
