Eating: An Eating Disorder Poem




Eating


nibbling at my nerves

picking at my priorities

licking away my laughter

feeding off my fear

gulping down my growth

consuming my confidence


and...

swallowing my self

Good poem. I feel like that too when I've had an eating binge, like something in my Self has been lost.

I agree. I think many can relate to those feelings. I appreciate you taking the time to comment, Judy. Thank you.
