"You're so strong. You made it through"
They say these things without a clue
Yes, I'm sill here, but I'm not strong
Left wounded, bleeding far too long
My pain it lives inside my skin
On the outside looking in
I see this world from another angle
From the darkness, snared and tangled
Beneath the overgrowth of ugly layers
I'm all done crying.. unanswered prayers
My sickness hovers always near
Reminding me of what I fear
"Don't touch that mess, it will make you weak"
"The Beautiful don't need to eat"
I could not escape, so I embraced her
Now I cannot live without her
Sucking feeding depleteing my life
I defend, argue, and justify
On bended knee I bow in defeat
Porcelain skin, shiny, and clean
sour liquid bubbles from below
My sisters in this illness know.
Don't leave me friend, please stay with me
As I spread my wings, I'm finally free
Hold my hand as I sink under
Lighter than I ever wondered
