Chronic migraine is sort of a secretive thing. We fake a smile for the camera. Hide the pain behind a smile. Hard to see. Hard to know. Never see behind closed doors. But it is a lot of cancelled plans. A lot of pain. A lot of symptoms. A lot people do not see or know or comprehend.
When I first began my hobby of drawing again it was driven and inspired by the pain of my chronic migraine. The intensity of it.
I have written many poems about chronic migraine but this one is the one that I think nailed it.
