SB 10.47.19
vayam rtam iva jihma-vyahrtam sraddadhanah
 kulika-rutam ivaj├▒ah krsna-vadhvo harinyah
dadrsur asakrd etat tan-nakha-sparsa-tivra
 smara-ruja upamantrin bhanyatam anya-varta


Translation:
Faithfully taking His deceitful words as true, we became just like the black deer’s foolish wives, who trust the cruel hunter’s song. Thus we repeatedly felt the sharp pain of lust caused by the touch of His nails. O messenger, please talk about something besides Krsna.

Purport:
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti categorizes this statement of Srimati Radharani’s as ajalpa, as defined by Srila Rupa Gosvami:

jaihmyam tasyarti-datvam ca
 nirvedad yatra kirtitam
bhangyanya-sukha-datvam ca
 sa ajalpa udiritah

“A statement spoken in disgust, describing how the male lover is deceitful and brings one misery, and also implying that He gives happiness to others, is known as ajalpa.” (Ujjvala-nilamani 14.196)
