Numb

I keep running my finger on the sharp edge of this knife

It had stabbed me multiple times

Yet, always hoping it wouldn’t hurt the next time

But the pain became like an addiction

Always running the knife repeatedly on the same wound

I have become immune to this particular pain

I watched the blood trickle down my hand

Thinking, should I run the blade one more time?
