Whispers

(You can never be too thin)

"Mirror mirror on my wall, ruthless to your victim... skinny, all these voices singing, skinny, all my monsters singing..." -Skinny by Edith Backlund.


hunger pains

and baggy jeans

hiding me from people

who would see

this ugly me.

ana,

why are you 

doing this

to me?

too skinny to fit anything

too fat to start eating

too stupid to see 

that ana is the one doing 

this to me.

"Mirror mirror on the wall, ruthless to your victim, suiting you becomes my love, tied to my reflection... hunger takes ahold of me, making my decisions, glossy fashion magazines will feed my new addiction." -Skinny by Edith Backlund.

stuff my face full of food

stomach heaves with all my guilt

we've been doing so well,

mia and me purging,

keeping ourselves skinny.

run to my bathroom,

look in my mirror,

mia whispers in my ear,

you are too fat,

don't you have any willpower?

purge myself of all this guilt

listening to mia

she's the one that knows what's best

listen to her whispers.

*

soon there will be no more me

mia is taking over

soon there will be no more me

mia will take over me

soon there will be no more me

mia will be pretty

*

(being thin and not eating

are signs of true will power

and success) -Edith Backlund,

Skinny.

soon there will be no more me

ana is taking over

soon there will be no more me

ana will take over me

soon there will be no more me

ana will be pretty

*

death is the new life

dying is the new living

why must we all be skinny

all of you are beautiful

even if

ana

mia

say differently.
