Migraine #Tanka

Throbbing tension stabs

Ache subsides then crests again

Muscles constricted

Needfully head held in hands

Yearning for anguish to end

A Tanka for Colleen’s Tuesday challenge (yes I know its Sunday)…the week’s demands have not allowed me to give this challenge any time until now. I wrote this as a haiku after experiencing a migraine, another repercussion of the week’s stress! Realised I could shift it to a Tanka and take on the challenge, which requires the use of synonyms for ‘eager’ and ‘hope’, I chose ‘needfully’ and ‘yearning’.
