With skin to match her hair,
she pulls back the blonde tresses
to search the reflection
staring back blankly.
She moves with the grace
of a hero on the runway,
and puts herself through
the same horrors.
Nobody sees
what she hallucinates
in every mirror
her hollow green eyes befall.
The bones jutting out
from every angle and curve
look like unseemly pounds of
fat.
A resigned sigh
and a quick wince in need,
“A little less tomorrow,
and soon…
I’ll be so beautiful…”
