Image for the poem Eyesore


shut your mouth

shield your emotions
swallow them down

all the anger and rage
the resentment and pain
the self-hatred and shame

the fear of not being

good enough

i tried to change
to be someone else

but iím always invisible

unworthy and untouchable
unwanted and unlovable
the eyesore that is me

this mia and ana
who live inside me
both my best friends
and my worst enemies

they're always in control

they make me despise
this nauseating skin
i reluctantly live in

i'm afraid to feel
to trust, to let go

recover and relapse
eat punish eat punish
starve yourself to death

twenty seven years wasted

waiting to be weightless

wanting to be someone else
