What could I have done?

She walks into the room
Ashamed
Sad
Full of anxiety

Everyone is 
Slender
Slim
And skinny
All she wants is to be like them

When she walks in
It seems like everyone is staring
Staring at her stomache
Staring at her size 2 dress
That he thinks is too big
Everyone else looks skinnier
That's all she wants to be
Like eveyone else

She's scared and wants to disappear
Tears sting her eyes
Running to the bathroom
She looks in the mirror

All she sees is 
Ugly and fat
Nothing like reality
And all she feels is
Insecurity
Sadness
Scared

She hasn't eaten anything in three days
Starting to feel dizzy and light headed
She collapses in the middle of the bathroom
Waiting for someone to find her
Bring her to the hospital
Just like last time

She lays there exhausted
watching her mom 
Cry
And cry
And cry

As she watches her daughter suffer
In a hospital bed for the 
3rd 
Maybe 4th
Or 5th
Time this month
Who knows?
She's lost 
Track
Hope
Faith
Trust

She feels a rush of dizziness
Eyes roll back
Her body shakes as
Doctors rush in
Trying to save this 14 year old girl
Then,
Beep
Beep
Beep
Nothing...

The room goes silent
No one speaks
Everyone is full of sadness
Wondering how it could've gotten this bad

Her mom has given up
She's not even crying anymore
Just sitting
Wishing she could've done something better
But now her daughters gone 
FOREVER
