Death Relieved Poem by Rachael Gleeson

For S.P:

Death, tears, honour, pain
Throwing, hurting, beating heart, breaking heart
Shows me why, why
She wanted to relieve
Relieve her pain, her suffering
Psychological pain, ache
Beating down, pouring down,
Cannot think
I cannot say I know how she
Feels I want to understand
To have felt her pain, to feel her pain.
The extremity of hurt,
No human should exceed,
I want to help, it”s too late,
Long before my time, she went
She left, she thought,
She pushed down the barrier,
She got through the barrier.
