She is gone

and that thrills and frightens me.

I’m not used to her absence.

Walking upstairs after breakfast

I look round to see if she is following.

I catch sight of her

and turn my back.

I long for her.

I cry for her.

Then I mourn the fact that she is gone once more.

But I can’t let myself have her.

I am still remembering my lost youth.

It makes me tremble to know I wasted so many days.

How could she does this to me?

We are over.

Goodbye Anorexia.
