    written in memory of a friend...
    who made it through this tough time in her life..


    she's lookin' in the mirror
    her body's less than zero
    she cannot breath sometimes
    and her heart fails at times
    when she sees herself she
    know this cannot be
    as she thinks she's overweight
    when in fact she's underweight
    at five foot nine she was already thin
    but now with time she's unaturally thin
    seventy six pounds of baggy skin
    a drawn face with eyes pulled within
    no control of her life, she's just killing herself
    cuz she wont even listen to any one else
    her mind and her eyes say, "i'm so [email protected] fat!"
    thats why she can't even face the simple fact
    she can't see her body's bold, blatant effects
    as it screams out I AM A SUFFERING ANOREXIC!!!...

    girl...you put so much heart into your work...this is so beautiful yet painful at the same time. we as women put so much emphasis on our looks, i don't know if we're raised that way, peer pressure, or what, but it can be very dangerous especially when it's taken to the extreme. thanks for sharing your heart with us, Lovely.
