Anorexia

By , saratoga, CA
I am addicted to you
And I just can’t bear to stop
I know, this is insane,
But I need my weight to drop

You are the reason I live
But wouldn’t care if I died
Promised to show me the truth
But it turns out you lied

Some best friend you are,
No equality, I see
I am enslaved to you
Abide by every which decree

You guaranteed I would feel beautiful
False promises you didn’t keep
I’m now dependent on this game
And my obsession runs quite deep

You’ve cost me everything I had
Usurped control of my mind
I know, I should have seen this coming
How could I think that you’d be kind?

And when I think it might be over,
I’m tricked to think I might be free,
Again, you whisper in my ear.
Why will you not just let me be?
