The Seam
by Megrim Crunch *

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.
Stop.
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.

before his cousin Edvard Munch painted The Scream
which was based on Megrim’s original story reprinted here.

    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.
