there was blood under my fingernails

Added on by Alima Jennings.

from digging deep into my own skin

blood rushing down my thighs

from a thought

or two

drifting round

staring eyes

but I was staring at nothing

the kind of stare, that is really a daze

caught in oblivion of the world around me

trapped in my own stream of consciousness 

where did the world go?

I was gone, in outer space drifting along the astral plane not knowing what’s left or right or up or down or wrong or right

I was gone in my thoughts

but in that state of unknowing-out-of-sight-being I felt completely at peace.
