I fell from the cliffs of fear and despair and was plunged into your love. Now I stand sodden in its fortitude.
Bitter memories rained down on me, so I shook myself ferociously, trying to break free of love’s grip. But all hope was lost! The most beautiful monster has fastened its grotesque fingers around my legs, obliterating all hope of running.
There, horrified in the hands of this alluring beast, I came to realize that it did not come to hurt or harm – though it could – but to administer safe doses of love and present me with another chance at happiness.
