Anorexia

By
Picture perfect
How thin can you go?
Up for a challenge?
Painful and slow.

Waiting it out
Obsessed with forbidden
Skip one more meal
Keeping secrets hidden

Insomnia increases
Watching seconds tick
Saying you’re not hungry
Denying you’re sick

Grinding teeth
Vision wavering
Tastes long forgotten
You’re still savoring

Standing outside
Feels so cold
Approaching blackness
Then legs fold

Hospital bed
Haven’t awoken
Tearing eyes
Lives are broken

i can say the same. the structure and simplicity of this piece make it original and creative. it really lets the reader inside the mind of someone struggling with this disease. i give you props, for words don't meet the paper much on my part when i try to talk about it..

I do like the flow of this peice. The rythem is perfect. I also like the simplicity leading down to so many thougts, it lets ur mind go loose and gets you really thinking. the comparison is nice too :)
