I can go with *tIq;* Klingons talk about hearts non-literally all the time.

To me, *SoHvaD jIDuQ* says /I stab for your benefit./ *-vaD* doesn't 
have any sense of /general direction./ You can just use a locative: 
*SoHDaq jIDuQ* /I stab at/to you./ If you had said *qaDuQ* I would agree 
it was wrong.

You might also want to change the second *SoHvaD* to *SoHDaq*.
