Whether male or female, using duplicitous love as a weapon of conquest can often be worse for the victim than death. (Image by pinterest)

Weaponized Love

 

To gun down a target,

is to witness a 1700 mph kill

 

To arrow pierce a target,

is to witness a 200 mph kill

 

To karate chop a target,

is to witness an 88 mph kill

 

But a victim of weaponized love,

is apt to suffer the slow-motion of a tsunamic heartbreak,

metastasizing to mental asphyxia.
