It
dissolves the soap bar
into a thin sheet then
poof
its gone.

It
rewires a system
to make it go in a
different way than
everyone else.

It
is like the devil
telling you something
but, it’s really not true
except think it
is.

It
is whittling you
down an down
to nothing and ,you,
you don’t mind. You
like it.
you don’t see the danger in It.

It
is looking for
teenage girls
everywhere.

This is a poem about anorexia and what happens to what happens to someone who has it. This poem has really deep meaning to me because of what is happening between me and some friends. That's what inspired me to write this poem please tell me what you think of if

Wow!!!! I can relate to this poem soooo much!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much for posting it. The part I can relate to most is the part that goes "it is whittling you down an down to nothing and you don't mind. You like it. You don't see the danger in it." That's sooo true! :( I love the poem!

This is very touching, as I've seen girls around me at school suffer from this.

I really like this poem and how you made it so the reader has to guess. I tried so hard to figure it out but I gave up and read the "Author's Comments". Maybe you should make the poem so it makes it easier to understand what the poem is actually about or make the title with anorexia in it, like "It....Anorexia" or "It..(anorexia)"

"Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them, but you know they're always there."

This is a great poem. It's almost like a riddle because it doesn't come right out and say what "It" is. I read your comments on the poem too. I would like to personally say that I hope you and your friends can overcome this anorexia problem. I hate to to think that someone who can be a good poet would dissolve like a bar of soap.
