Anorexia/Bulemia (Her Deadly Friends) - Poem by Ray Lucero

Stares into mirror, can’t see her sallow face
Instead, she looks for signs of loathsome fat
Cruel lover said, “Your big ass is a disgrace”
Struck painful blow (the boy was no diplomat)

For solace she binged, ate everything in sight
Until guilt and low-self-esteem prevailed
Denied to all, she looked a deathly fright
For her common-sense had finally failed

Stomach acid ravaged a once great smile
A healthy body reduced to a bag of bones
Forsook family, for a self-imposed exile
Inner demons began to etch gravestone

Today, still courts her “Deadly friends”
Teasing death, until her young life ends

(I love you Sandra and pray for your recovery)
