Please help me!!
I tried but I wasn’t enough
With every bite you just wouldn’t give up.
They never heard your words but i still do.
I wanted to please no one but you.
You raped me with your voice,
And I never had another choice.
Haunted by your abuse
I knew there was no use.
Try and try I did every day,
Slowly pieces of me would begin to fade away.
I sit here with razors and something to drink
Wanting to do something anything besides think.
But you return with every bite of food
And every decision.
Just like before with your narcissistic precision.
The memories are too much for me to bare
Everyone says, “just eat who cares?”
I do and with food comes many tears
With so much of your abuse from so many years.
I hate food and this is me pleading,
Please stop and let me learn about eating.
You’ve had your turn And now the time is mine.
It’s time I leave your mean ass behind.
You’ve taken part of my soul with which you played with like a toy.
But all it was was one of your narcissistic ploys.
You tried to mold me into something I could never be.
My cries are loud and screaming, Please someone help me!!
