One second you can conquer the world and suddenly you have never felt so low

When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be even lonelier than when you're by yourself.


Trying to understand you
Is harder than it seems
Your face of ivory, so cool
Makes it difficult to believe

I see your lips moving
But you do not make a sound
My own lips start to quiver
As my world comes tumbling down

The news I receive is haunting
And I know that it will stay
But for now I revel in your beauty
And pray it will make me okay

The feeling of numbness takes over
It seems almost customary now
My meal is a pink covered penny
And my mind starts to shake up and down

It was difficult for me to write but I finally managed it! I hope your friend is getting better, it's a tough journey but she will make it in the end. Thankyou for your kind words :)

The title of your poem caught my attention and having a very good friend who faces the same issue I wanted to take a look at it. You have got it right, it's hard to understand and all that you have got there it's a perfect picture of ana, and it takes a lot to write about something like that. Anyhow good job there
