for feeling back stabbed, for femme fatales, for wards against lovesickness, for waging spiritual battles, for invoking, for warriors here for peace but ready for war, for divination, for an amulet of protection against the darkness of grief, and above all else, a talisman for slashing through the thick, tangly briars knotted around that castle, holding you back.
the first time i met an ex's mother, she told me never to marry a man with a dagger tattoo. what an odd thing to say at the time. she was a bit psychic and it's a bit odd that now i am married to a man who has not one, but two dagger tattoos. ;)
