I have fingernails
Long, prettily manicured
To claw at your face

Thanks for the comment. And, no, it's not for anyone. I just saw Kristin's photo randomly popping out and I made this haiku for fun =))) but then I remembered my friend while writing this and I became more inspired...

ouch, this one stings. 

It's fun that you used a haiku to express such angsty feelings, since they're traditionally poems of nature and its wisdom. I like everything except the word "prettily" whichn just doesn't seem to ring true.

"Long, prettily manicured"
This should have been long and prettily manicured. But then, it would have 8 syllables so I used a comma :)

Thanks for the feedback, anyway... :)

"I can do anything!"

Somehow "long, pretty" doesn't seem to go with "claw at your face" but OK.
