There is no difference

 

Girl one: She dresses in black and listens to music dark music. Walks around without a care not voicing her worries, loves, or fears. Keeps to herself as much as possible and dreads when other humans want to talk to her. She gets asked on the daily if “she’s ok?”, and it’s always the same answer “yeah.” Reads books to escape reality and music means more to her because it banishes the silence that threatens her mind. White lines on her skin showing people how many times she’s lost control and broken down. How physical pain is nothing compared to the psychologic pain she deals with. She is sad, inside and out.

 

Girl two: she’s the girly girl. Her closets filled with fun colored dresses and cute tops, more clothes than one girl needs. Her family is picture perfect, rich white picket fence family, dog and all.  Her hair is perfectly golden and always looks impeccable, never a strand out of place. This girl is the popular girl, more friends than she knows what to do with, and dates the hottest guys. Behind all that is a skeleton. A girl that sees and feels nothing but dread. She struggles to get up every morning and face the day. Social outings make her queasy, and behind closed doors she is a virgin.  She puts on a face, never showing what’s inside because her mother would hit her again, starve her again. The scales on the kitchen counter not for weighing the food its self, but to show her what she can’t have. She is sad, but only on the inside.
