I promise it won’t

“I promise it won’t
hurt”, she pleasingly whispered,
stabbing me gently with love.

  1. Great line: “stabbing me gently with love.” The whole thing is fantastic, really. I see it as funny, but also very dark and true. Love is great and kind, but also dangerous if misused. And to associate love with stabbing is very clever.

    1. Thank you very much. Love definitely can be dangerous at times, I think we’ve all had experiences where it feels like you’re being stabbed. Sometimes it’s addictive as well.
