05 Nov Headache Poetry: STATIC
In the fall of 2006 the NHF’s Headache Education and Support Group facilitators invited their attendees to submit headache-related poetry. Because interest in this project grew, it was opened up to all who visit the NHF’s web site, as well as those who read NHF HeadLines.
The NHF received a variety of headache-related submissions. We have selected poems, limericks and verse that are relatable to those who suffer with this disease.
We extend our sincere thanks to all who submitted their work.

My bedroom is filled with sound,
the constant noise awakens me.
Loud static pulsing through my head
then the pressure pushing and pounding
through my skull.
I cannot think, only cower.
Pain sparkles behind my eyelids, white noise
ringing through my brain.
Sleep is killed for me this night, killed by
the dreaded migraine.
