It is I, Your best friend Ana

written by: Brittany Kay Arvizu

Introduction:

I am Ana Mia Nervosa
My full name is Anorexia/Bulimia Nervosa
But most just refer to me as Ana or Mia

Part 1:

I will make you feel complete
I will make you feel whole
I will make you happy
With me you will achieve all of your goals
With me and only with me
Everyone will see your perfection
They will see that girl with direction
in her life

With me and only with me
You will be perfect
For the first time in your life
You will be in control

I will make you beautiful
I will make you flawless
I will make you envied
By all

All of your problems will be solved
Once you take my hand
Others will wish to be like you
Once you have my brand

Part 2:

I see you have come to me for direction
Thanks for riding aboard this train
I know that I promised you perfection
But what I give to you is pain

You thought that I would give to you
A great deal of control
But what you did not realize
Is that is what I stole

I have secluded you from the outside world
But you have yet to realize
I have taken from you your closest friends
Much to your demise

Who now do you turn to
When the world has left you standing alone?
Not to your friends or family
For I stole them, you now have none

So where were you when the ones that you love
Slowly drifted away?
Too busy with me, your new friend Ana
Much to their dismay

You were too lost in finding perfection
Too lost in your new sense of control
Too lost in my faulty direction
And it has finally taken its toll

Part 3:

You're beautiful now
Was it worth it?
Your perfect now
The world knows it
You're thin now
And you're envied for it

But you have lost those that you love
You are consumed with me
No time for fun
No time for friends and family
But you are thin
You win

Isn't this what you wanted?
Isn't this what life is about?
Isn't it great now that you're perfect?
Well I'm sorry it's too late now

You sought to find control
You sought to find perfection
Well I took you for a stroll
And you fell for my deception

You only wish now that you could leave me
But it's too late
Because without me you couldn't breathe
For your life I dominate

So hang on to me
I'm your only friend
The others no longer care or understand
Reach out to me
I'm there for you
I will take your hand

Together we will fight the fightYou and me throughout the night
Hold my hand
I understand
I listen when you cry
Lay by me, I care for thee
As I watch you die
