So beautiful. I love the end particularly, with the tone switch. The brackets work well too. Maybe add some stanza breaks for each new idea.

I love the way that you use parentheses to sort of convey really short terse images that work wonderfully in this poem. I like the little bits of desperation that sort of come out and the emotion behind it too. There were some powerful lines for a free verse poem, such as "give in/go under." I really like how you ended the latter line with a period, the way you formatted it as a free verse was a relief because so many people don't bother to format. I also like how you sort of have an end that's a little hopeful, it's nice, it adds to the piece and doesn't leave the reader completely in anguish, but instead leaves on a little moment of perhaps hope with the image of the calm outside.

I liked the structure of the lines (i.e. places, spaces, faces).

"Give in." A simple line; full of pain. :)
