Headache

encephalitus
A fever simmers down below the scalp
That bends the brain and breaks the spurious mind,
And shatters bonds of sinew and white matter.
Oh pain! Oh cursed pain that stabs like forks
Of lightning in between the festering lobes.
The prurient brain is wizened for all time.

The web of nerves will shimmer and pang with pointless pain
Oh disco of lights and multi-coloured fractals!
Hallucinations hypnotize my skull,
And tumours in the eyeball of the mind,
Are pestilence to the braid of sanity.

A mysterious malady contaminates my soul,
The senses are aflame with poison blood,
And pus is pulsing to the aching ears,
As the limbs putrefy and drop off.
It’s a worry.
