    BOOM!! Explosion,
   fire, smoke, serene...
As I realize what has happened;
  Just what i've done to me...
Focusing, I regain clear vision;
  As i'm gazing straight towards me,
  I see myself, Bloodied;
       Crumpled in a seat...
I look upon all the chaos,
   that now lyes before me;
Almost as if, as if in total disbelief,
   of the horror that's been created...
              created within me,
           by me,  for me,
                  too me...
Lifeless, no movement from my chest;
      Lifeless, without momement;
             No breath...
  My eyes opened wide
      potruding, it seem's;
As if frightened, or caught by surprise;
     I lie there, looking directly back at me,
As I watch  myself, lying there,
  My eyes, looking into my eyes;
      I drift some, just a little;
I'm farther away now,
       still aware of my feelings;
somehow still apart of me...
    Overwhelmed with regret,
        of what I now see;
  Alone, no movement;
   Me, Looking back at Me...

    wow! Your thoughts are deep.... one time after labor, my body was asleep... my body was coming to after the c-section... i remember my mind awake, while my body slept. I actually thought of death during that moment.. I was pretending my body crossed over.. very strange to share that with you.... Like you i always look back at that day...xox~pd

    Incredible write. Sometimes the most terrifying things we come face to face with is ourselves. I love how you incorporated the terror with these words. Amazing. Favorited. xD Always, Laura
