I made an image for Migraine Misfits page using my poem from the Putting Our Heads Together Poetry Contest, 2013 I could have sworn I made a blog post about my entry in that contest but I guess not. Or I fail to see it. Anyway I submitted a piece called ‘Dancing on the Dagger’s Edge‘ which won first place this year. Poetry is pretty personal so I was proud of it but at the same time not sure what to say about winning. I’m sort of really introverted and self-conscious about these sorts of things. And maybe I would not have done anything with it at all but I do like the symmetry to it and the metaphors I used so to help add some images and awareness for Migraine Misfits I decided I would use it. The imagery is meant to be vivid. This constant balance or dance we try to maintain but always on the edge of pain… then the slice of it… a dagger being a good one I think for this. This idea of a battle, struggle, pain… but no blood, no physical sign of it… an invisible disability. We’ll see if it goes over well, given it is poetry and the image I used is fairly basic.
