Eedy

Eedy

A Poem by Lawrence Elisalde
"

The complicated situation and feelings of someone who cares deeply for a girl with an Eating Disorder.

"
"Eedy"

I'm so very close
because I'm so very far away
if I try and pull her from the fray
her demons keep her at bay

She's the light at the end of a dark day
the voice I need at the suns first ray
,oh how I miss that long lost May

Too beautiful to ever want me
friendships are all I can sew
its someone else who holds her key
I'm oh so sick of our misery

More beautiful then I'll ever deserve
too beautiful to see me as worthy
I long for what I'll never know
I desire whom who will never desire me
too short, too brute, I'll never know

She sees what no one else sees
, as being unloved and gluttonous
our appraises are kisses from bees
and my winks are most monotonous

I see her from a different angle
,from her voice of an Angel
to the arresting smile that does enthrall
but her HUMOR grabs me most of all

I can carry her a mile
on my back, through the Nile
I'm sure she'll laugh and smile
but sadly, for only a while

She's brought me in, and I'll do all I can
but it feels like a waste, to lay out a plan
she's too free to let me catch her
too caged for me to free her

Some of the commas may appear to be in weird places, but I did this intentionally, to help with the rhythm.

This is a very touching poem. I myself have an eating disorder and it was interesting to read about what goes on on the other side of the fence. When you are so consumed by your eating disorder, sometimes it is hard to remember how it effects the loved ones around you. This is very beautifully written.
