Anorexia

you are a voracious beast
you lie like an angel
you seduce and you whisper

you take reason away
and in her place the ugly sister of distortion settles in

shame and guilt are your tools
you promise endless beauty and satisfaction
but you deliver a consuming, soul-sucking distraction

I pray that your victims
escape from your prison
may they find themselves again
