Random Poem:

Dying For Perfection
myximmortal

As messed up as her insides
 1
She’s dying for perfection
 2
She’ll not die happy
 3
Hides the bite marks and it’s off to pretend again
 4
 
 
[[Chorus]]
 5
 
 
And she was just [[dying]] to be thin
 6
Wanting to be accepted in
 7
Hoping the bones would show from underneath her skin
 8
Watch as she falls to the floor
 9
Can’t bear to hurl anymore
 10
Does anyone even give a shit?
 11
Purging the imperfection so she won’t feel it
 12
 
 
But its always still there….
 13
 
 
The sweet sound of starvation,
 14
No pain no gain,
 15
Her hollow ribcage
 16
Showing how empty she is inside.
 17
