Scooped out

I feel scooped out, scraped clean along my husk like a wedge of cantaloupe. The blanket I'm under is wrapped around me, but I only feel one section of my body, an area under my breast on the left hand side. The rest of my body feels absent, air-like, weightless, sensation-less.
My face is gone, one sliver left, around my cheek. The rest has no weight, no form, no edge. My legs end in nothingness, my arms sense nothing below the elbow.
I feel my consciousness hanging loose, like a low-lying cloud, suspended in a transparent framework without form.
