How can I save you when I can’t save myself?

CW: Eating Disorders
By Emma Brant

I see you

calculating

restricting

controlling your body

three times a day.

I see me

crying

confused

wishing that

I was normal.

I see how you

hide

pretend

fake your wellbeing

for others.

I see how I

glorified

romanticized

embodied the disease

that devoured my body.

I see you and

hope

plead

beg for you not to be

like me.
