Braided VeinsYou were 26. Paralyzed, certain, and beautiful.
I was 15. Naive, lost, and unaware.
Somewhere along the line I braided the veins in my wrist to match the scars in my soul.
You told me once that you felt sorry for me, and all I could bring myself to do was laugh.
And it is then I realized tragedy and despair only lived in the mind, but only if you let them.
