Skinny Girl's Problems Continue

Turns out skinny girl hadn't eaten in days
The lining of her stomach was eaten away
The girl did not even drink
Nobody knew what to think
Rumors they spread
Saying she was close to dead
Only then did they not care
About the looks of hair
For they regretted that they teased
With her weight they were never pleased
It's sad no one looked her way
Until that sad unfortunate day
The skinny girl used to smile bright
Her eyes used to be full of light
Her eyes now drooped down
Her mouth is always in a frown
She use to just sit and read
Now she is hooked to an IV
Losing all that weight
Was the only she felt great
She soon realized she didn't care
If all they did was stare
Or if they teased
Being so skinny made her pleased
They apologized for many things
But not for the pain they did bring
They told her she should have ate
But that would stop her from feeling great
She begged them please
Do not tease
They begged her now
To eat lunch from here on out
But she no longer needed
To sit where the popular were seated
She got better for a while
She learned to fake a smile
To starve herself she got the urge
Instead she began to binge and purge
She pretended to stuff her face
She then threw up in an abandoned place...

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
