Four walls

Come crashing in

No escape

For the one within

An ugly blue

Painted prison

Now a rather

Regretful decision

Painful throbbing

In her head

Sometimes wishing

She were dead

Left to the devices

Of these four walls

Nobody reaches out

Or hears her call

Left all alone

In tremendous agony

Wishing for a potion

To set her free

*I wrote this last spring and never posted it.  Having another terrible headache today, reminded me of this.  I’m actually in a pretty good mood, unlike the one I was in when I originally wrote this.  I think those of you with chronic migraines can relate to this one.  Here’s to hoping they finally find a cure for headaches that actually works!
