🔥 Hot Flash Hell Haiku 🔥

 

🔥  Hot Flash Hell Haiku 🔥 

Hormonal headache 

Flaring up at 4 a.m.

Taunting the Synthroid
Puddle of head sweat 
Dripping onto soggy sheets
MoRnInG HoT fLaSh HeLL 🔥  
Underwear binding
Evil, disloyal traitors
Unforgiving fiends 
Leg pillow, ice fan
Trusted friends of menopause
Welcome, mid-fifties!

  1. These are AWESOME and SPOT ON! I have been pretty lucky overall with these afflictions, but I do know of what you speak. That 4 am headache – ugh, deadly! Especially, when you face the long working day ahead. Be well!

  2. Dear Kim… in a word: ALAS. The truth you tell is not “slant”… it's what country folk might call the “pure-T” truth. How you capture and convey such power in so few words always astonishes me. Love the capitals running through the “hot flash hell” line – that random jaggedness of the experience itself – although I do see that part spells RIGHT. Underwear as evil traitors and fiends… preach on, sister!!
