One Year Disease

One Year Disease short poem

Photo by daniellehelm

2 weeks, I look in the mirror and all I see
Fat, ugly, and worthless staring back at me
I pinch my stomach hoping it will shrink
It has only been two weeks; I will soon look better… I think
The limit is only 600 calories
I will write it every day in my diary
3 months have passed and I’m feeling sick
My brain is slowing and I’m no longer quick
I no longer have any weight to gain
Now I’m starting to get bad headaches and I’m in pain
I feel nauseous and cold, I need to cover up
I’m nervous; soon is my doctors check up
6 months has gone by and I’m starting to get noticed
You look beautiful, thin and not at all bloated
I look in the mirror and all I see
Fat, ugly, and worthless staring back at me
I need further restrict my diet
500 calories now just keep quiet
9 months and I’ve lost 50 pounds
My weight is now 100 but I still look round
My hair is thinning, my skin is pale
My family won’t hug me because I’m frail
I wear baggy clothes to hide that I’m now only bone
My parents are embarrassed, now I’m on my own
12 months and I can barely move
90 pounds has become my groove
This disorder has taken over forever
I don’t think I can ever really recover
Once again I look in the mirror and all I see
Fat, ugly, and worthless staring back at me

One Time Above A Little Shop

One time above a little shop, An old greengrocer climbed on top, Despite himself he could not stop, The world had changed forever. The fruit of that old grocers loins, Became obsessed with notes and coins, She knew the club

One Poem From Mud Poetry

One Poem From Mud Poetry elegy

Strangers from incident, lies for distance, pitfalls of living infrequent, Rushes of sympathy pass over like fever sweat. In concurrent motion the wolves swarm on the lifeless carcass. Impending emotions fill the hole in my stomach, my chest continues to
