Skin and Bones by Kristy

Anger is like Anorexia Nervosa
each pound gained is another
reason to pound a fist
against a wall.

Frustration lingers when
there is food
nearby.

But release comes
after the scale
says another
five pounds are lost

Anything above size 8
means the scale
must be broken.

Size 00
the ultimate goal
makes others
Uneasy

The mirror
shows another
ugly body.

But to those
close to the
heart,

All that is left
is

Skin
and
Bones
