It Doesn’t Go Away!

It just doesn’t go away!
That pain inside my head.Most of the time is a dull, low,
Constant pain, like someone
Placing a band around my head.

It is constant, but sometimes
It grows, like a ball pushing out
Against the band,
It becomes so weighty that
It is hard to hold my head up.

When the pain is really great
I fell angry and I know that
I can do nothing about it.
It is there and I know the cause
But there is nothing that I can do.

Withdraw from those I love,
From those I care about,
It seems like the only answer.
But I can not hide, for if I
Hide, I give the pain more room to grow.

I know that this will not last,
but until it is gone I must hold on.
Hold on and not lash out
To cause more pain for those I love
And those I care about.
