Poem About Struggling With An Eating Disorder

I have come up with this poem as I am in eating disorder recovery. This has given me the experience and I really just needed to get my feeling out onto the page. But don't let that fool you I also put a lot of work into it! Also this was originally meant to be a read out lot poem.

The Truth

Published: November 2013

Slippery sweet syrupy words sticking in my brain
A lie
They won't go away no matter how much I try to send them back to where they came from
A lie
Its so f*ck*ng hard to abstain from the succulent fruit of life
A lie
A black force telling me food was my enemy and they were my friend
A lie
They say that the home is where the heart is
A lie
But home for you it's where the torture continues
A lie
You're are worth nothing and the only way to prove yourself is to shrink and let the space around you grow
A lie
Until the space around you envelops you in its clear perfect arms
A lie
But when society tells you you're nothing but wrong in those skinny shiny books
A lie
Stick arms reach for sustenance the manipulator does not want
A lie
Extreme measures in which a "diet trick" went wrong
A lie
All this young girl with wanted to do was belong
A lie
Trapped by her twenty four bared cage guarding a twisted mangled heart
A lie
The slippery sweet syrupy voice tells her it's the only way
A lie
Two finger are the best weapon and to use it always
A lie
Black, everything's black till you're put in the white tiled hallway
A lie
Because everything is a lie
A lie was how it started
A lie is how it continued
The truth is how it ended
