Skinny Girl's Story

There's a girl who's real thin
Basically bones and skin
In therapy she sat
For she thought she was fat
You see she didn't eat for days
She harmed herself in many ways
She still stays in that seat
For she still won't eat
You see her looks once got her teased
The belief in her being pretty ceased
Her eyes to shine bright
But now they're never in sight
For she began to slouch and look down
Only staring at the ground
By losing pounds she thought she looked great
But nobody noticed her new weight
Acting normal she went along
No one noticed what was wrong
Her body soon covered with fuzz
She constantly heard this loud buzz
Nobody knew how she was harmed
Her body it never got warmed
She piled up clothing and wore a large hoodie each day
She tried to stay warm this way
But her body was in a bad state
If she kept living like this she'd die at this rate
Nobody ever saw her munch
Nobody noticed she didn't eat lunch
Till one day in when she walked into class
She collapsed...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
