Don't set boundaries for yourself.
Because building boundaries is only going to keep you from doing the things you want to do.

Hungry to rise makes me a smaller size
Hungry to rise i began falling for my anorexic lies
Hungry to rise makes me wanna go exercise
Hungry to rise sweet a sugary confection but im cold as ice.
I craved his affection.
His touch.
His kiss.
My bones protruded.
My smile widened.
So close yet so far.
