*TW* discusses eating disorders

she shrank

to take up less space in the world

(the space she was told she deserved)

all the while desperate that someone see

her acts of invisability

she reduced, to feel more full

but as she grew smaller

people saw less to love

she denied her mouth the nourishment her heart craved

she taunted her stomach

as she felt taunted, by a world that said

she did not fit in

she starved her body as her mind felt starved

her muscles deteriorated as she found no way to know her strength

she turned herself inside out

letting her gaunt body scream

of a malnourished soul

but all she did

was shrink

and shrink

and shrink.

silently.
