Luise Kraft - It’s me
Hi Margi and Warriors!
My name is Luise, I am 19 years old and I am struggling with anorexia and bulimia for two years now. I read the Warrior Talk posts and it really inspired me to write a poem. The poem describes EDs as a friend, who acts like he would know you but it turns out that he doesn't want what's best for you.
Hello it's me
I can be anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating
As long as you keep me feeding
I will be repeating
These thoughts in your mind
That no one should find
I know how you feel
Alone, depressed and not real
You're craving love and attention
And not even to mention
The power of control
Which you want deep down in your soul
But hey, I'm your friend
Until the dead end
I can give you all the feelings
That you find appealing
Like the happiness you get from showing bones, loose clothes and a paper waist
Not to forget the number on the scale that doesn't raise
I can help you lose weight
Even after you ate
Just take laxative or throw up
That will make all of the binge-eating up
Don't think about your bodies damage
That will be easy to manage
With me everything seems so simple and great
But you should be afraid
What the future will bring
If you can't get rid of me, "this thing".
I really like what you are doing and the way you are putting it out in the world! I love Warrior Talk.
