Unhappy No Escape

We had a lovely roomie named Sadielou once. She was my RL sister and she introduced me to the room exactly 6 months before her untimely death. That was 7 years ago Aug 7th. I still miss her very much yet know she is forever my Angel. I wrote this 1 yr after her death and would like to now share.

No Escape

It grabs you by the throat and compresses your chest,
your pulse pounds in your head as you struggle for breath.

It hits you cold in the middle of the day,
when all seems well, it jumps in the way.

It plagues your dreams while deep in sleep,
no tiring it knows.... all hours it keeps.

You struggle for answers.... you search for relief....
how will you escape this thing they call Grief?
