My eyes ache. Like toothache, but no optician can fix it. Like my brain is expanded, and pushing them out from behind.

The left side of my body too. Deep, throbbing, ache. Down to the marrow.

Then there's the stabbing pain across the back of my skull. I laugh it off... Say I'm OK. I say that the headache fairies have visited today, and are giving me a once over.

Then the pain subsides, and I feel exhausted. No longer hissing at the light, I can look out through the windows at the sun.

White clouds.

Blue skies.

Blue skies.
