Poetry By: angelmona

You've become a bird with no wings
A flower with no petals
A sky with no stars
A moon with no light
What're you doing to yourself?
You look like a deceased woman
This battle between you and your body
Wake up! Soon you'll be sticks and bones
Wake up! Soon your grave will arrive
You're not hungry for food
But you're hungry to be thin
You're body is eating it self
Like a starving mad wolf
Haven't you had enough of that pain?
Yes that grievous pain
The one that runs from the top of your head
Down to your toes?
The one that leaves you exhausted
Twenty four hours a day
Seven days a week?
You feel fatigue, so weak so tired
But yet you could not sleep
Why can't you see
That you're special the way you are?
Why can't you love your self for who you are?
Stop lying to yourself and everyone else
Stop pretending you're ok
Because no you're not
I know you more than anyone else
I look at you in the mirror everyday
Watching you shrivel, droop, and wilt
I wish I could do something
To stop you from what you're doing
It aches me when you're in pain
But I don't know what to do
God where are you?
I need you right now
I'll pray for you every second of my life
Just help me blossom again
For I know you'll always be by my sideā€¦
