Eating Disorder Poetry: TRAPPED



Trapped

My body is trapped in this mind
I try to break free, with fragile arms
No match for the burden of
This madness, sadness
That is heavy
So
Heavy

My mind is trapped in this body
Stagnant thoughts long to break out
To be strong, to step off this painful record
that just won’t
Stop
Spinning

My song is trapped in this mind
Why now does it just sound
Like noise, static. It screeches,
Incessantly, urgently. Where is
My
Voice?

My love is trapped in this body
Somewhere, hiding, beneath this
Cold, callous shell. Oh, it’s real –
Delicate, vulnerable, and trapped
So
Trapped.
