Headache Poetry: Status "Migrainosus"

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.

By Heather Nicaise, California

Alone in the Dark,
there is a fear of infiniteness.
I hate the pain that envelops me.
I’m afraid it will never end.

There is a fear of infiniteness.
I struggle with the pain.
I’m afraid it will never end.
I cannot see the light.

I struggle with the pain.
Nothing to do but wait,
I cannot see the light
screaming Inside my head.

Nothing to do but wait.
The fog, the haze muffles me.
Screaming inside my head;
despair that will remain.

The fog, the haze muffles me.
I pray for its dissolution.
Despair that will remain
until misery releases my soul.

Praying for dissolution-
I hate the pain that envelops me.
The misery releases my soul.

I am alone in the dark.
