Tasteless Reality - Poem by Jessy Liz

She’s getting weaker by the minute-
Purging every broken dream.
She’s dying to be perfect-
And she’s going to extremes.
Days are passing by,
And she’s eating less and less
Friends and family
Are begging her to confess.
God forgive her-
She knows she can’t give in.
Trapped in a bittersweet world-
She’s living off of this sin.
She’s eating up every minute
Of her tasteless reality.
She’s trying to be strong-
For God’s sake, can’t you see?
She’s purging every memory-
Every single thought of you.
She’s starving herself to death
So that you can see her, too.
She only wants to be perfect-
Surely that much can be attained?
But her slowly blurring vision
Is only getting in the way.
Sinking to the floor,
She knows it’s over now-
How did it come to this?
Now her silence seems so loud,
So loud…

To ANA....
