what i can remember
is a lot like water
trickling down a page
of the most beautiful colors
-Marie Digby 'Unfold'

I run a hand along my stomach
looking in the mirror.

So big.
So fat.
So out of control.

My stomach growls in frustration.
I hush it.

5 more pounds, I tell myself.
5 becomes 10.
10 becomes 20.

I can't stop it now.
I am what I eat.
I eat nothing.
I feel nothing.
I am,
Numb, so numb.

So close, one day.
So far, today.
A tear runs down my cheek.
Too far from perfection.

Wow! This is amazing and touching. I believe everyone is beautiful no matter what. They may not look like everyone else, so prestige and "cute" like everyone else, but everyone has their own unique look. Good job!
