Friggin’ migraine’s back again.
When the hell is it going to stop?
The right side of my head’s like a seam, unraveling. Skull shards floating away in slow motion.
There is no screaming pain. Only blinding anguish.
I plunge the heel of my palm into the throbbing corner of my eye hoping to make it stop.
I’m going to splinter into a million pieces; like a broken window. Then I’ll be gone.
I’ll be just an empty paneful space.
That’ll give me one hell of a migraine.
Ha. That’ll give me one hell of a migraine. Not funny.
Maybe I’ll have a million tiny migraines. Ouch, that thought hurts.
Maybe my migraine will be gone, permanently.
I mean without a head, how can I have one, right?
Paneful space? Now that was a pun.
Ha. That cracks me up.
Ha. Another funny.
Cracks me up. Get it?
Huh. I’m feeling a little better now.
Maybe I’ll just scream.
Maybe that’ll help.
Safer than splintering.
* The Seam by Megrim Crunch was written
before his cousin Edvard Munch painted The Scream
which was based on Megrim’s original story reprinted here.
Always wondered about that painting. 🙂
Wonders never cease. But with this, wonder no more.
I am right there with you seeing France through you… Randy
Glad you have you there (and to have you back.)

I loved this part so much – “The right side of my head’s like a seam, unraveling. Skull shards floating away in slow motion. ” Great description! I’ve only had one migraine in my life so far but… man… it was absolutely terrible. So debilitating. I really empathise with those who experience them frequently.
I have to go now my head is killing me. Randy

This is stunning. Awesome. I agree about, “The right side of my head’s like a seam, unraveling. Skull shards floating away in slow motion.” Fabulous.
Why, thank you.
If I can ever get my palm out of my eye, I might feel even better.
Always, the big IF. 🙂
no, not really, just a little iffy.
😀 😀 😀
Very nicely written. Good bit of art history.
I thought you were a lover of art… as well as other things.
