Why?WhyWhy?4 years ago in Emotional More Like This
Every day as I get ready I ask the same question,
I look into my bathroom mirror and ask myself why?
Why am I so ugly?
Why am I so overweight?
Why am I so dark?
Why do I have on and off acne?
Why am I so hairy?
Why don't I have perfect s-curls?
Why am I not slender?
Why is my nose so wide?
But most of all why am I not perfect?

A Sad Little GirlA Sad Little Girl4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There's a sad little girl living in a sad little house with sad little parents. This sad little girl had no friends, she always sat alone under that sad oak tree watching the children play. Teachers always asked, "why don't you play with your classmates? It's a beautiful day! Go make some friends!" With a small frown upon her lips the sad little girl went out to play. Laughter filled her ears, the sun shown on her face. And out of the blue the children stopped. Held their balls, the laughter died, the swings stopped. Their lips all pressed into lines. Backing up the sad little girl went back to her tree. A tear ran down her cheek. Slowly a cloud hung over her head, she walked alone after school; the cloud growing over her head.
The grass was dead, the crows digging their talons into the tree flapping their wings. Window shutters falling off the hinges. Paint peeling off the walls. Mother was to depressed to even say 'hello' to the sad little girl when she returned home from school. Fat
TearsThe tears you shed last night,Tears3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
the tears I wiped from your eyes,
were tears of love...
What we have is so good,
we both know that although it will last,
it will be hard
when you part,
and I am left here on my own,
missing your kisses,
So we cry...
But we will fight.
Near or far
we will stay together
now that we have been together,
now that we know
how it feels to be so close...
it feels just perfect.
Nothing, no one,
no distance will keep us apart.
It will not be easy.
We will have to be patient.
until we meet again.
We are living the time of our lives,
you and me,
and it is better
than what we had expected it would be.
so very good...
That is why we cry
tears of love...
Love and HateI love the way I can make my stomach heave.Love and Hate4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I love the way I can stop myself from eating.
I love the way I can make mysef bleed.
I love the way I can see my bones after a while.
I love the way I no longer recognize hunger.
I love the way I have scars on my skin.
I love the way my clothes become loose.
I love the way my face begins to thin.
I love the way my skin tears away from the blade.
I love the way I can control it.
I love the way no one notices.
I love the way the evidence is never even suspected.
But I hate who I've become.

For NowRight now I am broken.For Now4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the silence of my room,
Under the cover of darkness,
I see my flaws all too clearly.
For now, I hate myself.
I hate that I'm weak,
That I make my friends worry,
That I can't save myself without help.
In the morning, I will be happy.
I've survived the nightmares,
I'm living a new day,
And I have piano first thing.
At lunch, I will be warming up.
My friends make sure I eat,
Because they notice what's going on,
And I'm proud to call them my family.
In the afternoon, I will be excited.
I'll get to see my favorite people,
My unofficial support group,
And I'll sing my heart out.
In the evening, I will be calm.
Dinner will pass with ease as we talk,
All of us around a dinky table,
Laughter and conversation in the air.
When night rolls around, I will be hushed.
I will seclude myself again,
Already living for tomorrow,
Wishing there was a way to silence the voices.
Right now, I am broken.
But tomorrow is a new day,
And with the people I love as support,
I believe one d

just like you always said
now everyday at lunch is when
the toilet is my best friend.
Why am I not wanted enough?
it's written across my arms
the way you ignore me makes me feel like
the scars do more help than harm.
Why am I not good enough?
I gave you everything plus my heart
but still you pushed, used and broke me
and left my heart in shards.
Why am I not loud enough?
for you to finally see
that deep inside my bleeding heart I realize
that you're not good enough for me.
Something To Lose.Is this all I am to you?Something To Lose.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Just something to lose?
Someone to hurt?
To hit and abuse?
For that would leave marks
Not even mentally
You go straight for the heart
Like a waterfall cascading
It won't ever stop
I'll be here still waiting
Or so I once thought
I can never fight this feeling
But I can't help that it's here
Maybe it'd be best
If I could just disappear...
Am I Good Enough for You Now?Am I Good Enough For you Now?Am I Good Enough for You Now?8 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You told me I was perfect,
Just not for you,
I know that's not true.
I know you want someone better,
Than I could ever be,
And for that I am sorry.
It appears that you like girls who are stick thin,
You know the ones who have no flab or skin,
The girls who resemble skeletons.
I never thought I'd sink this low,
But for you I'll change,
I'll just leave the healthy weight range.
Are you happy now,
I'm down 3 sizes and a half,
Am I good enough yet.
You also like bad girls,
The one's who are always smoking pot,
The one's who think they look hot,
But for you I'll change whether I like it or not.
Now I'm addicted to pot and cocaine,
But I'm still not good enough all the same.
Still nothing has worked,
Maybe if I were one of the girls who wear short, short shorts
Maybe youd like me if I were a whore.
Now I've signed up for prostitution,
I feel like it's the only solution,
Am I finally good enough for you.
Now I'm stuck in rehab,
And I feel like a load of crap.

To all the folks out there
'Cause we all know Valentine's Day
Ain't really all that fair.
So I've decided to pay tribute
To all the lonely ones about:
"Feel free to stare at those who're cute,
Go ahead, give 'em a shout.
And keep in mind the candy
'Cause Walmart sells 'em cheap
The day after all the lovey-dovey,
Man! What a treat!"
So if you're feelin' down
'Cause you ain't got a love,
Throw away that horrid frown
And feel the after-holiday chocolate love!

A chemical bath
And when I'm through
You'll lose your minds
Soon children's laughter
Will be deviant, corrupt
A Hero's nightmare
But that's never enough.
A sense of humor
So dark and twisted
Like Jason's funeral
Too bad I missed it.
With a broken smile
So painful, but true
Not only for me
But my victims, too
It's all for you.
RecoveryRecovery is learning how to say I will never miss an opportunity to eat a Choco Taco while on an outing with the friends who throw worried glances in your face every time you all sit down to eat. Choco Taco; it says on the package, This is not a reduced fat food. You throw a worried glance at yourself, choke the thing down. Try not to look like youre enjoying this more than a sane human being would. Walk back into the sunlight, drink another 24-ounce bottle of water, walk and walk and walk like a woman possessed.

It is looking in the mirror, watching your hair dry to that classic anorexic poof, and realizing with horror that you have gained weight, that your face is fat, that your arms are fat, that your legs are, once again, each the size of a small hippo.

You are easily killed.

"Does that hurt?"
"That's not a real answer, Ryan."
"I can handle it."
"That's what you say now," Rylie said. She examined the gash near Ryan's right elbow. "If this swells up, tell me immediately. That could mean there's an internal infection."
Ryan grunted. Rylie held his hand up to wrap a fresh bandage on top and pressed her hands against his arm to smoothen the creases. Ryan turned to look at her, but she appeared to not notice. The small blonde put back her equipments back with an air of a well-practiced healer.
She closed her case shut and spoke to Ryan, "Well, you seem fine. Just tell me if you notice any changes."
"You'll be sure to see them first." He replied teasingly. Rylie gave a brief smile before she headed towards the living room.
