Today I am unintentionally
green and blood inside.

My feet sort of hurt
From walking
On all of those eggshells
That you left
On the floor and all over
The floor.

I really, really like the image in the second stanza. It just makes for a great visual.

Such an interesting image of pain. The repetition in the last stanza is the echo that might be bing-bonging around in the mind when trying to let go of something that hurts, but maybe stubbornness keeps holding on to it. At least that's the way I sense it.

'i am....green and blood inside..'
