Anorexic

I try to run

but you hold me

turn me to the mirror

and stand behind me

forcing me to face

deep eyes haunted by denialemaciated cheeks of starvationblue veined skin stretched tautover a framework of fragile bone

the anguish in your eyes

over my shoulder

infuriates mehurts mefrightens me

I struggle to avoid my image

but the steel of your embrace

is inescapable

Mother, help meI don’t want to die

Anorexic
