Beauty defined
Seek completion in the hunger burns
Hating self
Reflection worse
Blazing the power of denial
Filling shrunken belly with water
Exercise to manic heights
Shin splints, lips split
Hidden and hiding
Hair lank but glossed bright
smoking the need away
Jitter, fidget, stare intense
Rearrange the room
Pick at a cushion
Weight and waiting
hurting inside
Self justifying
Self punishing
Self canabilizing
Giving you the right to live
And still that wish
Dying in the body by degrees
Eyes bright
As to you
Life becomes more complete
