284: Torturous

284: Torturous 

No one will listen to my call for help
No one will come to my aid fast enough
I ask for aspirin, but am only met with silence
Please help, please help

I scream and cry, finally
It gets her attention and she tosses at me
Some aspirin, and a glass of warm water
Help help help help help

Four hours later I wake up
Everyone else is asleep
My headache’s still there
The aspirin did nothing

Headaches are torturous
