Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia:
.
.
Pain pain go away
Gotta work the next day
Percs only go so far
Pressured face GAR!!
Pain pain go away
I just want one day
Pain free so I'd play
But I guess there's no way
Pain pain why are you so cruel?
My whole life you seem to rule.
Why so violent? Why so mean?
No cure exists, so it seems.
Pain pain what a bitch
My whole face is now a glitch
All these nerves randomly twitch
I need an off/on switch
When the pains get too much
I wish for death not just a krutch
Heat pads and pills' all I can do
To try and just make it through
It's a pain worse than death
It hurts to even take a breath
Lightning, pressure, burns, ticks
Feels like I'm hit by a ton of bricks
Some days I wanna lay down and die;
I just keep asking oh God why? 
Agony isn't a strong enough word,
For all the insane pains endured.
Warriors, survivors, and demigods 
that's what we all are
To have Trigeminal Neuralgia 
and make it this far
"It's all in your head"
No shit Sherlock
That's where my nerve's spread
I am a rock
You can not shake me
I will not be moved
As I have endured
This miserable groove
But we manage to live 
We manage to fight
Pain beyond compare
Nearly every night.

Sound Very Deep Very Helpful to people who suffer from this same thing

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
