bottom: revised—again!

(bottom: the lowest point or part of something)

bottom

one has to hit bottom
really hit bottom
fall deep and hard
smashing forehead and nose
so that the vibrational pain reverberates and echos to a deafening roar—in the night
in the head—in the mind
causing a tidal wave of pain,
then allone can do
is try and lift ones damaged head
(while giving excuses and denials for this hellishness)
try to look up over the shoulder
to look up, to defy the damned
truth that all but killed thoseone dragged as well
—to the bottom

bottom

there is pain, one’s face kissing floor—blurred vision,
water filled eyes reach to look up—hurt—so much hurt
words can’t be spoken
all the while one is hearing those words
words unspoken that court confession
to explain hurt
not only to the one,
but to others

bottom,

there is a reason for the bottom,
the bottom—several bottoms,
—lots of pain and
remorse seen as in some mist shrouded code
leading to reflected memories
that taste like vinegar

bottom

one was on the edge
one took the survival path,
then the edge crumbled,
disintegrated,
one fell—
—then the bottom,
one did not go alone,
others as well were dragged into this pit—its always the way it is,
one is alone, so alone,
totally alone until the fall
then, when the bottom becomes real and in the face,
(with all its brutal ramifications
both known and unknown)
there, painfully seen lying about one are those called collateral damage

bottom

blood emotions stain the floor
weapon words lie shattered, discarded,
attempted explanations come from the inflictor
those inflicted point to a
truth with a different view…
to the one there is only one
view—— bottom
