The bottle becomes lighter as the alcohol works its way down. In another depressing whiskey soaked rant.  Drowning more sorrow with bitter comfort. When will this finally stop? When can this heart mend? A hole as deep as the darkest canyons of the earth. The veins run with blood coursing as a river polluted by the harsh filth of life. All of this knowledge gained through conditioned punishment. Like a reluctant soldier’s tour of duty.  Never  questioning and never forgetting. Marching onward to an unknown battlefield too large to ever survey alone.
