Thunderstorm in the Head

When in your head
Is raging a hurricane
When every thought hurts
And drives you insane

You cannot do anything
But slow down and rest
To relax the tension
Take the pain and the stress

There are those times
When life demands it all
Of course, you hang in
Until you only crawl

When we fail to estimate
How much we can bear
Our body steps in
And says: “Stop and take care!”

Sidenote: I wrote this one when I had a really bad headache and it was all I could think of.

In Love and Light

Erika, nicely done. You reminded me of author Robert Ludlum in his “Bourne Identity” series. Bourne would tell himself “sleep is weapon.” So, get some rest. Keith

I couldn’t agree more, Keith. Sleep is precious. You only understand when you begin to develop sleeping disorders. Thank God, that has become better. So, yes, get some rest and don’t always think you have to get the job of three women done… lol.


This describes perfectly a raging headache… Really spoke to me..

I used to suffer really bad migraines and crawl into bed with bucket at the side and wet cloth across my brow…. So really understand those thunderstorms in the head… Not nice at all…

It is terrible to be at that point and I can recall the moments you describe here. Each small movement is like hell. My youngest one went through it last Sunday too.
Thank you, Sue 💖

Haha, how’s that for synchronicity. I’ve had a doozy for 2 days now, my crushed disks singing their song. Must have needed a duet dear lady, I now feel better already, thank you 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽
