How to use splinter in a sentence?

  1. Rose Walker:

    Have you even been in love Horrible, isn't it It makes you so vulnrable. It opens your chest and it opens your heart and it means someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up this whole armor, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like 'maybe we should just be friends' or 'how very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

  2. Mike Sullivan:

    I run my hands over all the toys and feel for something that's not supposed to be there -- a loose wheel or splinter.

  3. Bryan Bishop:

    It was less than cordial, because there were a lot of concerns there, but I tried very hard to explain to them that this is not a splinter group, that we are veterans and happen to be gay.

  4. Ashley Jones:

    I would generally recommend that you not leave a splinter in place.
