That shiny exterior lures you every time.
Yet, still you bite.
Why can't you see those backward facing points?
It's hard because they are hidden so perfectly behind the glitz and shine.
So, you bite again.
Dragging you deeper and deeper in.
Even further than you thought you'd go.
Time passes
and you bite once more, thinking it may be different.
But it's not.
Not until
that day.
The day when you just can't bite anymore
because you've recognized the bait
and realized it is false.
And, Oh my! ....It's Always been false!
This is the day that you swim.
Swim faster and more accurately than you've ever had before.
But, for how long?
