hello there rim, it seems we’ve met.

how could i forgive, how could i forget.

my chin rests upon your white surface,

it seems we always come to this.

i get down upon my knees, 

she begs me please, keeps begging please.

a push and shove, she’s out of sight.

i just want to be lovely, dainty and light.

spewing mistakes that i’ve devoured today,

i wish my true soul had a say.

spilling more and more fuel,

my face is clammy, pale and cool.

passing out is what i am a custom too,

cuts and scrapes and easily bruised.

thinning hair and loosing pigment, 

seems it’s been a while since.

not throwing up because i’m drunk,

throwing up because i’ll never be good enough,

until i reach my goal, until the numbers go down,

i’ll keep on creating this familiar sound.

gagging and choking, music to my ears.

drowning out what should be fear.

i will say i’m sorry, but not for what i have done,

i’ll just say i’m sorry, for the person i’ve become.

i’m changing now i swear, i’ll do better in time.

but this is my life, you can’t take what’s mine.
