Note to Self: Do Not Eat

Note to Self: Do Not Eat

A Poem by ashweejune

A forbidden taste

A mysterious feeling

The hatred of it nearby

The passion to make it all go away

The excuses made to prevent it from entering

It's all inside your head

The mirror is your biggest fear

While showering, you scrub so hard as to scrub away the imperfections

Crawling out of your skin is all you want to do

Wanting to get a knife and carve your body

Into the masterpiece you want to see

Because who wants to see this?
