Ana (Anorexia)

Poem By Samantha White

I hate you because you're taking over me,
but I love you 'cause you're making me the girl I want to be.
Why do I love you when all you do is put me down?
Making me starve 'till I fit into the smallest gown.
With the loss of each pound I'm closer to my goal,
with your help I will make this broken girl whole.
Filled with fear at every bite I take,
my plan will be ruined with just a bite of that cake.
Counting calories and fearing how much I weigh,
I am beginning to learn that you are here to stay.
My reflection has become something I fear,
I dread the time when I will look into that mirror.
The pains in my stomach seem to never go away,
It grumbles with hunger while in bed I lay.
Every little bit of food I take in,
Must come back up to make me thin.
If I disobey anything you tell me to do,
If I really swallow the food I chew.
I must stick my finger down my throat once again,
and all the food must come up despite the pain.
You have become my only true friend;
I fear the day our relationship must end.
But I know that you are here for a while,
so I hide our friendship behind a smile.
Oh Ana help me to become beautiful and strong,
I know that it is with you that I belong.

Spinning, swirling, lost in confusion,
not even knowing what I am thinking.
Falling, crying, bleeding, dying,
Into this pit of depression I'm slowly sinking.

Desired Perfection

O beautiful perfection for which I seek,
you leave me so light and feeling so weak.
In my stomach it seems there's a constant ache,
but this path to perfection I will not break.

My Pain And Love Is Like The Weather

As I sit here on a cold rainy day, Staring out the window at the pouring rain, I
think of you.
As I sit here, under this blanket, trying to keep warm, I only feel as if I have been left out in the cold.
As I think of you, my eyes fill up with tears.


Though from you I'm far away,
it seems with you my heart will stay.
I just wish you could understand,
all I really want is the touch of your hand.

Beautiful Perfection

No one understands the perfection I seek,
the reflection I see everyday.
No one hears the words I speak,
my fear of how much I weigh.
