'Running with scissors' in life & love. What does this metaphor mean to you?

Report as

This saying is decades old and means to be drawn towards adventurous, risky behaviour. That can refer to relationships, romance, employment, etc.

Living your life is equivalent to the running, and you obviously need the scissors quite desperately; why else would you be running with them? Thus, the scissors are love, but it adds both purpose and danger to the act of running (or living), for if you tripped without holding the scissors, you would still get hurt, but much less fatally than if you fall in life with scissors, or (a lover who is close to you), in which case, you'll be lucky if you don't end up "pierced in the heart".

Keep trimming the poking disturbance
time to time and maintain mutual faith
belonging, love and harmony.
