Gnawing at my stomach,
it lets me forget
the pain residing within my mind.
To eat is to feel
which is a sensation
I choose to ignore
with this temporary distraction
that takes its toll
on my withering body.
| Oh Sweetie, I'm so glad you're much better now. It's not that much fun is it. Fun to be in control though, to know you can overcome your body...Sorry. Anorexia is bad and we'll leave it at that.|
this is a good poem though, very nicely written.
>>it lets me forget

glad you can face your past, but even more glad that you're not doing that bs anymore.

We live in a society where perfection is the rule. One can never be thin enough. Then you see these models, who look like they haven't eaten in months. To me, I never want to look that way. I have come to accept the way I look. For this is me and who I am. I'm just glad that you realized that before it was too late. I would be saddened to know that such a beautiful mind was wasting away.|
I have nothing to critique on this, because it is such a personal feat for you. Thank you for having the courage to share this with us.
May you be strong and beautiful inside and out. Kudos to you for beating such a terrible disease.

She used to be incredibly beautiful, having the face and body of a model. For someone unnecessarily to waste their beauty - always too fleeting in a person's youth - and their health is a sin - not against some god, but against life, and against their potential to experience joy.|
Please read my poem, "Belonging". It might be helpful to you.
Oh, yeah...The poem is quite decent, fairly economical in its use of words.
Best to you,
