A knife is an object
Cold and lifeless
Lying there
A knife is a tool
Used to cut
To shave
To clean
A knife is a weapon
Used for protection
Or offensive defense
Or peace of mind
A knife is a drug
Used for pain
But addicting
After the first use
A knife is an embodiment of guilt
Of actions once taken
The executioner
Of innocence
A knife is a reminder
Of past mistakes
Of lessons learned
Of scars retained
