DIS-ORDER (POETRY)

I eat to make the pain fade today

And the dragon in my belly

Plays monstrous villains

Till all my emotional scares fade away

You’ll never understand why I eat the way I do

Don’t try and diagnose me

Because I will eat you away too

I will vomit till my face turns blue

Tryna’ forget that I hate you

And that I hate myself too

      Thanks for visiting
