Anorexia Nervos Binge-Purge Subtype [Poem]

Don’t stop me.

You couldn’t stop me if you tried.

I don’t deserve the help.

Cut it up, patterns and colors

Talk fast, don’t let them see

If you speak, they won’t focus on

What you’re eating.

Fill yourself up with daydreams, of

What it might be like to finally

Lose a few, gain a little more control.

Why am I so out of control?

No one sees, I make sure of it

No one sees, the way I lose control and

No one sees, the way I bring it right back up.

I’m alone.
