Good work Brittany Jo, I second L. B. \'s comment. Rawly evokes loss and a tender spoken hope you draw out at the end.
I like how it\'s a descent (bottles bottom) with no sense of mending, think that\'s what adds to the rawness. Hope to read more.

A beautiful read of Passions, fragility and brittle exchanges that anyone with a heart can acknowledge and own. Thanks Brittany.

I remember (believe it or not...) that feeling which pervaded the years and years of my youth. Painful - not on stable ground.
No advice to give. Just to say that life is full of other phenomena , complexities worthy of your attention. Inside you there\'s the ability to go out and grab it, I\'m sure.
Take it easy, Dave

Interesting piece, religion can be a very beautiful or a very dangerous thing, and can be used as a tool for dictatorship which destroys any beauty it may if had to begin with.

Dont forget the romance of such times, beautifully captured here. They will be lost to you all too soon as time presses its changes upon you.

All it needs is somebody to listen to you, if you can find a true listener to whom you can tell your troubles those troubles will become lighter. The other way of course is to write them down either just for yourself or for others to read - it always helps.

Very nicely written poem i fine write about religion and retiring from it and wondering why or the reason people believe. Personally I don\'t believe in god, never had but i still go church to keep my mom happy but religion does seem like some wishful thinking but if these things existed i think me and me colleagues would go to hell if i\'m being perfectly honest because of their \"rules\".

I have someone that I have this relationship with. She is the brightest person ive ever met, and she is so broken. We will never be together again and that is ok, because the relationship we have is one of a kind. I show her love without condition, and she shows her appreciation for who I am. Its love at its truest form, and 10 years strong. Reading this was beautiful. Very well written and very well expressed.

Very powerful in its straightforward approach to our collective heart and soul leaving us lost with no where to go
but that is a human lesson taught to us all

ThIs really made me emotional,
A strong heartfelt write
Worded with such detailed reality!
I want to hug you!
Thank you for sharing from your heart
It must of been hard to do so!
Stay strong! And drugs don’t work it’s just escapism that won’t last and actually darken your world, it may feel like a temporary peace and healing but they just make you worse!
Sending you love and support x

Brit,

I guess when the lights go out the illusion of the world dissipates & the real focus on the self can be seen & felt.

Great poem indeed.

Fine poetry skills Brittany Jo. A new awareness gained from a negative experience is the sign of a strong mind..not a weakened one.
