I was never alone

I set sail on a body pillow
On a journey across the Atlantic
I held my hands down in the water
and blood poured out my fingertips
Sharks formed a single-file line
Their fins gleaming in my bloody wake
Thousands of sharks in a line behind me

Sometimes I was thirsty
Sometimes I was hungry
I was  never alone
