her wrists

    Holy cats. This is fantastic. She writes to avoid slitting her wrists. Yes, of course. What else could save her?

  3. You weave magic out of just a few words. Well done 🙂

  4. Oh spot on, beautifully said and so succinctly.

  5. How brilliant is this!

  6. Awesome! A potent truth in a few simple words directly hits home.

    So powerful. I wonder whose blood she is thinking of. Cutting herself, suicide, or someone else who put her in the cage. Excellent response!
