Book; I am not a book, my title is not tattooed along my spine;
My life is not broken into easy increments like chapters. It does not flow. I cannot be studied line by line, and my thoughts, themes, ideas, and beliefs cannot be so easily dissected.
But I am like a book, my skin is thin as paper. Ink, not blood, pumps my heart. Open my skull, memories are written in small type, along the fractures.
My name is Deyaneira, I'm seventeen years old and I'm from Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. I'm just an average girl that enjoys to write and draw occasionally. You would barely recognize me if you saw me on the street, but that’s okay because I do not try to be an awe-striking individual.
