Title: Top Drawer
Author: Adam Morgan
Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction.
As the life-journey of a knife:
Where once I was bright and shiny,
Now I am dull; my strength gone,
And I am filled with the brittleness,
My previously sharp edge is blunted;
From the repeated infliction of criticism,
Across my blade we see the colour raid,
The fiery redness that may never fade,
Surely it cannot continue for long;
Indeed! For soon I will disintegrate or splinter,
My unpublished words will never reach the printer,
Or perhaps I will simply cease to be used,
