My Poem About Bulimia - Written 7 years ago, before my recovery

This poem about bulimia was written by me, Shaye - over 7 years ago. It was written when I was deeply lost in bulimia and was unsure if I would ever find my way out. Although now I know there is hope and that recovery is possible for everyone... When I wrote this poem, I wasn't so sure.

I hope it helps you to see that I have been in a place of hoplessness with bulimia... But I recovered. You can too :)


__Each Day The Same__


Each day the same,

I play this game.

I can't find the way,

I don't know how to play.

Need someone to explain,

how to breathe again.

Suffocate and die,

I fall and I fly,

Always believe that I will find,

a way to understand my crazy mind.

I'm known but unknown,

Living unshown.

No one to me,

no one to be.

Can anybody see -

I'm dying to break free?


Do You Have An Eating Disorders Poem To Share?

I used to write poems to help express the way I was feeling. I hardly ever mentioned the word 'bulimia' in my poems as I was scared somebody would find them! I tried to explain living with bulimia in a more abstract way.

If you express yourself through poetry and would like to share a 'bulimia poem' for others to read - you can do it below.

I'm looking forward to reading your experiences :)
