Pain hurts, yet I feel nothing.
Words scream at me, yet I hear nothing.
The mirror shows me what is real, but I see nothing.
Emotion is strong, yet I block it out.
I want to be free, but I deny everything.
I am scared, so I don’t eat.
I am upset, so I don’t eat.
I am everything I hate, so I don’t eat.
All I want is to feel, but I can’t.
All I want is to be accepted, but I can’t accept myself.
Inside me is a voice, and it wants pain.
Inside me is a voice, who brings nothing but shame
Inside me is a voice, driving me slowly insane.
