Trying to write with this infernal headache, its driving me insane. That I am unable to construct a coherent thought when at the forefront of my mind is nothing but the pain. It is always there, on the left, just behind the eye. Why wont it stop! I would do anything to relieve myself from its nagging control over the side of my brain. Why doesn’t the right side stop it. Can it not share the load to make it all bearable. Or perhaps the right is the cause, laughing at the left as it remains unaffected.

Could it be a rooted parasite sucking the life out it’s latching point? How can you burn off this leech if its protected with a barrier of hydrocarbons and calcium phosphate. Knocking it doesn’t dislodge it, working instead to only to intensify the agony. The only path is to let the creature have it’s fill, letting the creative juices flow once more. Sleep maybe?…yes sleeping may fast forward it’s consumption…that’s what I’ll do…I’ll sleep on my right so that it can leave through my ear. I hope it doesn’t return or I’ll never get this writing done.
