how much longer?
I'll tell you when to stop

It's been 3 hours
Are you thin?

No
Are you perfect?

No
Are you hungry?

Yes
Then run.

I haven't eaten this week.
Congratulations. Run.

I cut myself. For you.
Not enough. Run.

I'm going to pass out.
Run till you do.

Please.

Enough for tonight.
No.
Run.
run until food is the farthest thing from your mind. run until your legs scream for mercy. until your breaths come in tiny gasps. until your vision doubles. until coherent thought no longer bothers you. until you can forget everything else in this life. until nothing matters. except being

THIN.
