Desired Perfection

Poem By Samantha White

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.
Lying, hiding, and concealing,
the touch of a bone is such a wonderful feeling.
My flesh will slowly begin to vanish,
the desire to eat I struggle to banish.
A fallen angel with broken wings,
of being light as a feather she softly sings.
I listen and obey her every calling,
into this void of hunger I'm slowly falling.
No one understands the words I say,
Ana's identity I will never betray.
I laugh and smile like nothing's wrong,
while in my head is playing constantly Ana's song.
She is my love, my life, my every dream,
and she will never leave me so it would seem.
She's helping me make my dreams come true,
and she won't ever leave no matter what I do.

Ana (Anorexia)

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.


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.

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.
