Random Poem:

Dying For Perfection

As messed up as her insides
She’s dying for perfection
She’ll not die happy
Hides the bite marks and it’s off to pretend again
And she was just [[dying]] to be thin
Wanting to be accepted in
Hoping the bones would show from underneath her skin
Watch as she falls to the floor
Can’t bear to hurl anymore
Does anyone even give a shit?
Purging the imperfection so she won’t feel it
But its always still there….
The sweet sound of starvation,
No pain no gain,
Her hollow ribcage
Showing how empty she is inside.
