I made a new friend,

she lives in my room

and in my head

and everywhere I go.


She has brothers and sisters,

they always come along too, her name is Ana.


Ana is a picky eater,

she prefers water and Ice,

Ana gets angry 

Ana doesn’t like to brush her hair.


Ana told me that I don’t need breakfast,

Maybe I don’t need lunch or dinner either,

she told me that I’ll be beautiful and that I’d feel great.


Depression is Ana’s sister, they’re always together

Depression is rude, she likes to be alone and she keeps me hostage in bed

Depression makes me tired, 

she invited her cousin


Her name is Insomnia

she keeps me up at night,

she lets me cry even when there’s nothing to cry about.

Insomnia makes the darkness of the night feel like perfect company.


Ana likes to come with all of her friends,

they invite themselves in

It’s like a party

Except I’m the party,

for them.
