An Analogy

Love can come in two horrible ways.

First, it's slow.

It can be a small poisonous snake that slithers its way near you then injects its venom into your defenseless and unknowing body. You don't feel the pain, its merely a sting..unnoticeable until you are at the throes of death and agonizing over the discovery that you are bitten and would be lifeless soon. The realization of impending doom is excruciating. Here, death claims you slowly as you cry for dear life. Second, it's fast. It can be a huge python that snatches you out of your reverie. You see the predator coming but you just stare at the hungry monster as it grasps you with its evil teeth and quickly wraps you in its deathly embrace. Right from the start, you know you are lost yet you can't do anything. Death comes in an instant. Even in death, the animal will swallow you whole as if killing you isn't enough. Death comes quick so it could kill you over and over again.
