Wow. This poem is beautiful. Again, I have nothing to criticize. The last line gave me chills. Now I can sort of understand some of my friends who are dealing with anorexia. Each stanza adds so much. My favorite stanza is the last, especially the idea that "feeling leaves me breathless" because you are made of air. Once again, a beautiful poem.

Wow, that was really good. I've never dealt with eating disorders, but it's always one of those things that's right in the back of my mind, ya know? I think the way you used these words to describe this was awesome. It was beautiful, actually. Excellent job. Twizz

When I was younger, though most pple don't know, I had a slight eating disorder. I come from a family of pretty heavy pple and I love food so this eating disorder amazed me. During that time I felt like just the look of food would make me throw up.
I think this poem portrays EXACTLY what goes through a girl's mind when she does these stupid things.
This was written SO well. I have NO words to express how much this poem speeks to me and how much I love this poem.
Keep it up!

Wow, this is an amazing poem. It shows the-how should I put it?-more true side to eating disorders, not just the froo-froo valley girls at school who exclaim for sheer attention, "Lyke omigod! I am so totally fat!", which I always seem to picture.

I, personally, have been struggling for quite a while with an over-eating problem, and could never understand what was so terribly horrid with not eating (which I could never seem to get myself to do, mind you).

Your poem has expressed in beautiful verse what is really there.

Ooh, this is great! Somehow you've made me understand what it's like, even though I've never had an eating disorder. I've always thought that the more you had to say, the easier it was to rhyme, and I think this poem proves that - it rhymes perfectly! The imagery is wonderful too. You are a great poet!

I loved this poem. It was very strong. Extremely talented!

You know this is probably my Number One favorite of yours. "Where their ideals become my meal"... "The scale, my worst enemy/The scale, my only friend"... "The only thing I understand/The only thing I can control"... "Will I ever live, will I ever dare?"...

Leaves you breathless.

A very nice poem. I battled an eating disorder in my first year of college too so I know how you feel. Keep on writing.~CT
