Best Poem of Ethan Petersen

Anorexia-Nervosa

Anorexia-Nervosa
Noun
1. Loss of appetite via pathology or other psychic forces.

I see the world through warped lenses
The beautiful angles of flesh and body
Turned grotesque in inverse proportions
My own form an incarnation of disgust
Intake ceases
So that growth may be delayed
Even in absence of increase
The gains seem more monumental then before
With each passing day further measures taken
Now only the form is warped
But all the possessor sees
Is the bloated shape of their vanity

Read the full of Anorexia-Nervosa

Power

Power
an illusion
that our lives
are our own

Power
reaching for it
grasping
but our hands stay cold

[Hata Bildir]
