I hate you. The fat around my thigh, the marks on my wrist. You disgust me. You will never be as pretty, or as thin, or as smart as they are. You are fat, you are lazy, you are stupid.  I will drown in my shame for you, for the ever-consuming thoughts you cause me to have suffocates my mind. The scars I wear remind me what its like to feel anything but the gaps between my ribs, or the skin above my stomach. 

I can’t focus, I can’t sleep. Every waking moment I think about you, how you look, how you feel, how I can change you. 

You are my body, my ‘temple’ and yet, I cannot worship you. You are my enemy.
