    time can draw out like a blade

    I't my first post in 2010,on this new year day I'd like to wish you all a happy new year!May all your dreams come true!
    Still on《THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION》:
    I have had some long nights in stir. Alone in the dark with nothing but your thoughts, time can draw out like a blade.That was the longest night of my life.
    How to understand "time can draw out like a blade"?

    Thanks!
