That could describe the subject of this story in the Times of India, whose lover bit off his tongue after she found that he'd been unfaithful to her. It could also describe me, after reading this opening paragraph:
The pain of love bite is intoxicating. But it can also be excruciating — particularly when a beloved is burning with the passion of revenge. An unsuspecting Indrajeet learned it the hard way — at the cost of his tongue.
Sigh. I don't blame the writer, frankly, but his editors: shouldn't they be grooming their writers, helping them to eliminate bad writing, if not to actually write well?

Anyway, I wish Indrajeet the best, and advise him to consider that it could have been worse.
