What do you get out of this? cheerful_leavesMichael Faraday School | United Kingdom 13 February 2019 Comments (3) Olivia @ Topical Talk 13 Feb 2019 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! Reply to this comment cheerful_leaves | Michael Faraday School | United Kingdom Olivia @ Topical Talk's comment 13 Feb 2019 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!
