Slowly the battle starts to rage
The fight begins anew
The warring factors in my brain
That once were knocked askew.
It starts with just a low headache
That creeps up from the back
It reaches to my temples
And thus begins the attack.
‘Ere long it’s in full fury
The pressure starts to build
My head feels like it will explode
It seems with war completely filled.
Once more my hand reaches to the drawer
Seeking out the prescribed relief
Without the drugs the pain gets worse
Pain becomes a rationale thief.
Contorted now upon the floor
My pain-wracked body twisting hard
I can’t take more, I need the drugs
But against addiction I must guard.
My mind drifts off as drugs take hold
Again the pain is put away
From time to time it will come back
It’s just I’ll never know the day.
