"Papercut Kisses"

A single thin line
etched in my skin.
Not even a centimeter long,
not even that deep in.
But the pain as it slices you open,
the little things can hurt so much,
its enough to make you bleed,
a papercut.
Simple, yet, extraordinary,
how a single piece of paper can do this.
Much like your love,
much like your kiss.
It cuts like a knife,
it burns and it stings.
Like small, little papercuts
all over me.

Papercuts are the most painful kind. In some of my past relationships, it was like every word she said, or didn't say, was devastating.

The little things matter the most.

I like this, and many of your pieces. :]

Nikki, I can admit a paper cut is far most the worst cut I have gotten harsher than a knife cut while cooking, the finner they are the more they sting just like that of love the deeper you heart is in the deeper the love stings! Thank you for sharing.

smiles :)
