The thick red liquid splashed against the snow white enamel of the sink.
It was bright and rich…the contrast was mesmerizing.
I leaned forward to encourage the flow, feeling the blood slowly gather into warm droplets. Gravity pulled it out of me as I watched in rapt fascination.
I wanted to stay lost like this, watching life fall away from me. I wanted to taste it. Play in it. I wanted to feel it drip from my body until none was left. This was painless. Beautiful.
I was at peace.
