Wrists.

    The pain in this cuts deeply, so deeply, that she was able to smile 'at a time like this.' Awesome writing, depth to the soul. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
