Reni, no worries at all.
It is a poem and it's not always clear that it's real or not in my work...just wanted to make sure you weren't thinking about experimenting. :)

Temple--Wow. Sorry. Guess now I get why you wrote so well about

it--and made it sound so enticing.  It's kinda like a smoker talking about taking a drag off of a cig.  Sometimes, even if you don't smoke, they make it sound so good that you want to try it...

Reni, you're a nut.

It's not something you want to start, and for me it's something like an addiction.  I'm in "recovery" and don't do it most of the time, then maybe I fall off the wagon....well, really only once, but that's enough.

Wow...It almost makes me want to go cut myself
(no fucking joke).  Like that would be the ultimate release...  Must put all knives up now!  lol

Sanity saver indeed.  Sometimes you have to get it all out there no matter what it sounds like. :)

Straightforward
Thank you very much.  It's nice to know someone can empathize with me, but at the same time I'm sorry you do.  Fortunately, as with most of my writing or poetry especially, it captures a moment or a time frame and I don't feel like that all the time.  It's not always like that, sometimes the writing captures a period....this one is off and on.  Thanks for reading and leaving a comment.

temple...I just wrote a song for you in my poetry blog..."Drink Me Pretty"

I know what you mean, Offbeat...
This poem is partly because of my rehab from my accident and the effects it has on my life (well, the effects the injury has had).  I feel like losing Jimmy is something else I've lost because of it.  It's so tiresome, and it's been years.  The brain is a funny thing to work with, but I thought Jimmy was so true.....I wouldn't have to worry about him abandoning me like he did in the middle of this because it was "too hard."  You see.  I've hit bottom, more than once....I just have to keep fighting, so I get frustrated.  Hence this happy, oh so positive poem. :)

I was speaking of hitting rock bottom emotionally. I will never forget the day that happened to me. There was nothing in the world that I wanted, not life, money, I couldn't eat, sleep and nothing could make me smile. It was horrible, tragic, but from there, for me, it started the slow process of rising back up. When I look back at it, I say it was my beginning and I thanked God for letting me hit the bottom. I was also pissed because it took so damm long for it to happen!

offbeat, hitting rock bottom is important if your an alcoholic or something
But, I'm in the middle of a process and and I have a long way to go still.  I don't think there is a bottom, just a steady struggle...not about Jimmy, he's just a piece of the puzzle...it's just a long journey, and sometimes I feel too tired and frustrated to even deal anymore.  Rock bottom was the day the guy rear ended my car and I lost everything, now I have to rebuild my life....takes time.  I get tired.

When it hits rock bottom..it starts getting better. In fact, hitting rock bottom is a major step, because it is where we can begin again uphill!!

I don't know offbeat...
It seems it's been feeling that bad, off and on, for so long now.  I hope you're right. :)

When it feels that bad, it is the beginning of the healing.

It would be nice if that were true.  But, sometimes it isn't.  Thanks for the kind words and the comment.
