About anorexia.

Don't want my bone to hide,
Lying under all the fat,
Bringing it to the surface,
Cutting out the crap.

So easy to deny,
Coz I don't deserve,
But I'm gonna be a,
Delicate bony curve.

No more peace,
Only worry when I eat,
The burning exercise,
But the rewards I reap.

Yes! More crying at the mirror,
Yes! More stepping on the scale,
Yes! More and more restriciton,
Yes! More feeling like a whale.
How lucky am I?

Nobody understands this,
They all think it's crazy,
But I'll get the last laugh,
How exactly is hazy.

I just want to be skinny,
Too many years of teasing,
Nothing I did was right.
Are my efforts finally pleasing?

But don't you worry,
Just please let me be,
Hunger tastes of chocolate,
So I won't be needing tea.

I really love your work. This poem is a wonderful look at the disorder from a point of view that is not often represented. And it is almost a determined tone, which I very much enjoy. Great work.

This is incredibly moving and brings light to a common problem. Excellent way of portrayal. I enjoyed the hint of sarcasm and the way you wrote it.
