627 Stupid [24 July 2004]

You were stupid.
You fell for it again.
Only this time you felt different.
Whether certainty or confidence,
one couldn’t tell,
but now you feel the blade,
its serrated, jagged edges
clawing at you deeply,
tearing the flesh beneath the skin,
forever a reminder of the mistake.
You stupid fool.
