Body games

by Laura A.
(Maryland, US)

i asked to be skinny
hoping somehow the ribs on my side would reflect happiness.
i believed eating was a monster
and should never let it sease my mouth.

skin and bones
like a notebook with papers,
blank and hungry.
waiting to be written,
hoping i would be living without food
carbs through the throat and running side my tongue.

A story about how,
a somehow of a change
deliberating the change from starvation to real health,
food is a friend not a foe,

i asked for beauty with being thin,
i got a case of anorexia and the left overs of bulimia.
