About eating disorders.

Distorted Image

The mirror

Can’t seem to fit her all

Within its roomy reflection

 

Her eyes drawn

To the rolls of fat, encasing her body

She pukes at the sight

 

If only she could see

The scrawny sickl girl

You really are

Author's Note

Chelsea
For those with eating disorders. My friend has one, so I wrote this for her. Also the line about puking this had a double meaning almost. Puking because she thinks she’d disgusting looking as well as being bulimic. Any thoughts on eating disorders? Please review!
Also picture not mine. Just wanted to show the mind of anorexics.

Also women with this types of conditions makes me so sad for them. I like a woman with juice on her body... who wants a toothpick?! Models are all tall, thin women and they all look sickly and ill. I am 5'2 and only weigh 110lbs and it feels too bony and I wish I had more fat on my bones...

I have been asked if I had a eating disorder before and I would get violent and angry at people that asked me that! I love myself for who I am and for what God made me... I wish everyone could see things in that way. God bless your friend and I hope that one day she sees the beauty she has and not the figure she thinks she has.

How society makes us think that its all about image and how a person looks is beyond me. Why do we even think this way it is because we are programmed to by the things we watch on tv. How someone who thinks they arent beautiful when they are can resort to this way of life is in a sense sad because they feel as if people dont accept them. Great work.

Eating disorders are horrific. Soul, and body destroying.
Totally pyschological problems, which need to be discussed with professionals as soon as posssible. Bulimia and anorexia are life threating, and desperately need treating. Please encourage your friend to seek help Chelsea.

The 3d image above reminds me of the game: the sims 3, lol, I read a few poems about bulimic people before. This one was brief, to the point, and painfully realistic. Good write!

It's so sad that girls have eating disorders because of how society puts in our heads that we must be really skinny. All shapes and sizes are beautiful and good job on the poem!

'She pukes at the sight'; I love this line and I understood that you meant she felt sick by her reflection as well as what she does to attempt to change the overweight person she sees (even before I read your author's note!); 'The scrawny sickl girl'; this is the only grammar error I see 'sickly'.

'The mirror

Can’t seem to fit her all

Within its roomy reflection' - I absolutely loved these beginning lines. They are powerful and they tell the truth behind the 'girl in the mirror'. Again another short, yet powerful poem. You have talent and I love it! Please do send more read requests my way, I'd greatly appreciate it!

And by the way us curvey ladies are beautiful doesn't have nothing to do with being fat they have beautifuk hour glass figures full figured woman she must also love her self and embrace that beauty comes truly from the heart real beauty and she might not see it there and others do thanks for sharing and worring about her weight doesn't help stress cause us to gain weight so many of these things i stay active & don't eat alot but nore do i starve myself of food. and being comfortable inyour own skin also thats some thing i am compfortable in my skin. life is never easy but it's what we make of it even when life seemed hard i kept going i have a love & passion for life she should find some thing she enjoys doing that sets her heart on fire that is passion mine is dancing writing praying & making ones laugh.
god bless lily
