    This is really powerful poem that gets behind the glamorisation of the problem. This line n particular is very descriptive, 'A bright gleaming hunger on the edge of the knife'. What do you mean by it? I'd love to know a bit more about your writing process!

      The phrase 'a bright gleaming hunger on the edge of the knife' in my opinion means that, that knife wants something from us which is to kill. Also I believe that it has a yearning aspiration to do it which it takes for pleasure. It is a metaphor which is used to describe something which human features. The phrase is appalling as well as that quite powerful. It gave me an urge to use it since the knife reminded me of a human with just the same characteristics. At first I was unsure about the phrase but later decided it would work quite well in this issue.
      Thank you for the star!
