In-patient Psychiatric Ward

"Just sign your name here."
My hand struggles
To find stability.
 
You just need
Some extra help
It will be alright.
 
"No one is making you."
No,
But I stopped taking my medicine 
Once again.
My eating disorder
Is driving me nuts.
I'm refusing help.
 
"You know,
You don't have to 
Check yourself in."
I know,
But I want to eat
Like a normal person.
I don't want my anxiety
To stop me
From anything.
I don't want to solve problems
By cutting myself
Or punching the wall.
I want to be a normal student 
In school.
 
"Well?"
I'm just scared
Of recovering.
There is still a part of me
That thinks I can do it
All by myself,
That I don't need help.
 
I tap the pen 
On the table.
 
It's been three years.
You deserve to be better.
What is there to lose?
 
My signature 
Turns out
To look like
A bunch of scribbles.
