Cake and Cigarettes

She lights the cake on fire
And watches it float away
Just like she does everyday
With a cigarette to ease the pain

Feigned innocence in extra small
Folding in to look glam and tall
Bones pressing against delicate skin
Hollow eyed with a hollow grin

Latest diet, fashion magazines
Scales, her silent master
Starvation always flirting with disaster
And just one taste of the forbidden

Her life now kissing the wings of death
Dizzy-headed and out of breath
Dreaming of wandering angel smoke
With Ana there to tighten the rope
