An Old Acquaintance Comes Around - Poem Bemoaning Migraines

Updated on September 5, 2012

There you are, again. You surprised me.

It's been a while. Where have you been? Not that I have missed you. My quality of life is certainly much better when you are not around. I have more fun when you are gone. I get more done when you are away.

I was not prepared for your visit and I cannot say I am glad to see you or even missed you while you were gone. You are not my friend. You never will be.

I have already made plans for the next few days that do not include you. I am not willing to rearrange my schedule to accomodate your demands. I cannot go to work with you tagging along.

No. I am not fond of you. I never will be. It doesn't matter how many times you come around. I will never be in love with you.

Quit bothering me. Don't come around again. What is it going to take to get rid of you once and for all? I do not understand why you come back again and again. You are a leech sucking all of the life out of me.

Migraine, please just go away, stay away and do not come back another day.

      James, thank you so much for reading and especially for the prayers. I never turn any of those down. There truly is power in prayer.
