MLMM Photo Challenge — Vertigo


I’m on a children’s ride
Going round and round
Everyone is laughing at me

I’m feeling dizzy
Everything around me is spinning
But I’m not moving at all

My sense of balance is gone
I’m spinning faster and faster
I can’t stand up

The nausea is building
I can’t hold it back any longer
I puke my guts out

I crawl into my bed
I’m in a small boat in rough seas
Rocking with the waves

I close my eyes tight
And pray for sleep with all my might
So that when I awaken

No vertigo

    I have had a little vertigo, worst one hit me about 3 or 4 weeks ago after I got to the car with groceries. Thank goodness I was not alone and did not have to drive home.
