Knife's Edge

I'll Survive (Track #5 of Seven Women)

I've always been a very careful person. . .unwilling to expose myself to situations over which I cannot employ a measure of control. Commitment to intimate relationships always involves a certain amount of vulnerability.

Some people thrive on walking on the knife's edge. It must be very exciting -- until you slip. This guy slipped. He slipped and his heart was cut in half. But as are all of my intrepid protagonists, he is philosophical. He relives his mistakes -- wallows in his heartbreak. It was bad at first -- real bad. But he knows he'll make it. He's young -- strong -- articulate. He's not going to roll over and die. He'll survive --- I love this guy.
