Poem: Headache

First drafted on Typetrigger.

Headache

This itch won’t go away,
It scratches at my skull.

It’s more than pain,
More than grief,
It’s defeat.

A hopeless case
I am,
I feel.

I want to hide,
Run away,
Bury my head,
Conform,
Resign.

Don’t rock
The boat,

You don’t have
What it takes,

It’s too late
For you,

You’re nothing
Special.

My head it aches,
Won’t it ever

Shut

Up.
