Poetry Blogs (2018, anorexia)
Have you noticed how I’m chewing gum again?
How apples have become my favourite food again?
That I can’t sit down because of the bruises again?
How I replace meals with jogging or writing or playing again?
Have you noticed that I’m drinking coffee again?
Have you noticed me?
I want someone to notice me.
Will you notice me again?
The water is starting to hurt again.

Hiding behind these thick frames
Shying away from these constant insults
Look down at the floor hoping it would swallow me whole
I look at myself in the mirror and see plain Jane
Back of the class, looking out the window
Nobody to talk to except your book
Every glare, every snide comment
I brush it off like an insect on my shoulder
Cowards check for cuts on my arm...
