Lifes journey

 

Breaking the cycle

 

As we fight for the will,

Step off the scales,

Put away the tape,

Step back into life.

 

Go for flight,

As we run to the food,

Stop our friends from worry,

As our parents shudder

 

At our eagerness,

To cook but not eat,

Make everything taste so perfect,

To cook but only have a small bit

 

We’re full off the smell,

Cook too much,

And the foods not as appetising,

Cook too much,

 

And we can go a week without

Eating,

Go a month without

Eating,

 

Watch as the weight falls,

Purge on our good days,

Binging on our bad,

Purge to recover from the lapse,

 

Laxatives down the hole,

Contents in the pan,

Emetics down the hole,

Contents in the pan,

 

Everything feels better,

Step back on the scales,

It’s going to be a good day,

Step back on the scales,

 

Find we’re up a kilo,

Break out the tape,

Measure ourselves,

Break out the tape,

 

Seal off the food,

Buy it from the shops

And eat in street corners,

Buy it from the shops

 

And purge at home,

Where noone sees,

Clean up the mess,

Where noone sees,

 

You fight the illusion of normal,

You break another nail,

You try to appear happy,

You break through another tooth,

 

Body falling apart,

Weight coming off,

Health going downhill,

Weight has gone down,

 

Compliments flood in,

Food intake on the up,

Compliments stop coming,

Food intake on the up,

 

Start to purge again,

Need to break the cycle,

Back to the doctor,

Need to break the cycle.
