Dead Before Enough

Dead Before Enough

A Poem by Scarlett

(T) The inside and outside views of an anorexic girl, from a combination of my experience, others, and research. It shows how anorexia twists the mind of the sufferer.

"I'm not hungry" she tells herself
And closes the cupboard door
She's nauseous and exhausted
Yet she still denies herself

Her brain whistles silent tunes
That screams she's doing wrong
Yet at the same time it tells her
That this is the only way

She'll be dead before she's thin enough
But now she'll never stop
She doesn't care about the bad
Or what other think

That's not what matters to her
Only what the thinks herself
Now she's hurting herself
Her view is distorted

And she knows.
