Poem -

Bulimia

Body image changes point of view.
Eating to throw up,
While smiling to cry,
Showing the hidden truths.

Guilt lives with shame,
Because they know each other too well.
Crying for help seems coward,
So struggling through is safe.

Overeating depression,
While purging memories away.
Take steps to avoid weight gain,
While slowly killing away hope.

Whatever that the wounds growing , after the night comes the morning....
