What are you looking for in terms of feedback? Any background information behind the piece? Hints? Is this just to vent? Emotional state while writing?

a note

Tall, graceful, pretty
To eyes that never
Belonged to you.
You only thought
About the things
You have to do
To be thinner.

There was a time
You began to disappear.
Filled with fear,
I burned
As I learned
The truth behind
The bruises on your knuckles
The thinning of your hair
The things you do.

I sat and cried
I vowed and tried
To help

  Um, this sounds more like bulimia than anorexia. In anorexia you just don't eat. Bulimia is the disease in which you make yourself vomit or take laxatives/ duretics. I know this because I was a near anorexic/compulsive exerciser in high shcool. My mom get me help before I got "too bad" though. I'm not a fan of rhyme in serious pieces, but kudos for tackling a difficult subject.

  beautifully put down a topic we all know. I really like the way you built the poem. at first you point out the why and the beauty. but as time passes, and the poem continues, the effects of the disease kicks in. and you realise the problem.

the ending, helpless and unable to help...

well done

  You misspelled graceful too. I'll type stuff to make this long enough. Blah, blah, blah. La, la, la. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Maybe it's sufficiently long now.
