“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Does this mean I can put away my sword/tongue? I'd rather be kissing..so why am I always cutting with my words?

I think as long as we percieve other as other we will feel the need to self preserve and that sword tongue is part of that package. Be gentle with my beloved sister-love! Her intention is pure to the core!
