"Hey, assbutt!" Supernatural, Castiel.


I have a little monster
It's no bogeyman or mummy
It's a scary little monster
And it's trying to kill me

It lives deep inside my heart
And tells me what to do
I feel like I have no control
When it tells me to throw up my food

He tries to be nice to me
Complementing the bones sticking out my ribs
He says I need to listen to him, because he's right
He always is

I hate this little monster
I scream at him to go away
But I know that the next meal
He'll be back to stay

I can't go to sleep at night
He wakes me up each hour
He tells me I have more work to do
If I want to stop being a fat little coward

I have tried everything to get rid of my monster
Depression pills, therapy, hospitalization
But no matter what I do
He's always back to ruin any situation

I smile around my friends
I play and have fun
When I'm alone I break down
But I will never let them catch on

Someday I will show I'm stronger than the demon
I'm finally getting help
Good Bye Anorexia
I want my freedom

this is really good. you seem very strong, despite what you say in the poem about thinking you, as you wrote, "a fat little coward." I have friends with eating disorders, so I can sort of relate. it is very touching, thanks for sharing. keep writing, you are really good!
