A Poem by recklessfunk

This is actually considered a "drabble" as it's exactly 100 words long, but I put it under the "poem" category as it's not an actual story, either.

She wanted to take a knife to her thighs and stab hard enough that all the blood would gush out. 
She imagined her thighs deflating then, leaving nothing but bone. 
Extreme thinness. 

She wanted to rip the skin off her legs and peel away like they were nothing but onions. 

She was so frustrated with her "thunder thighs" that she wanted to just scratch and punch at them until they wore away or bruised. 
Or both.

She hated wearing jeans that didn't fit her anymore.

She would tear her hair in frustration.

She would always loathe herself, no matter what.

Author's Note

Before you ask, no, I do not/did not have an eating disorder. I just really dislike my body type, as most girls do.

I love this! It shows hwo most girls feel about there body in a way that for the most part ever one can understand. GREAT write. (:

Ouch! Definitely provokes a emotional response from the reader and gives a realistic portrayal of a tormented person and the disorder that haunts them.

don't hurt yourself too much doll!

In some ways it would help but aparantly in the job world for women you get paid more being at the right weight but for men its the other way around. But nice job. and it is kinda sad. You should always love yourself for who you are.

Sad. I think that people should just start excersicing more. It would help with being "fat" and "overwieght".
