I want people to know.
I want people to be surprised by how much weight I’ve lost.
I want them to be scared to break me in half when they hug me.
I want people to take one look at me and know I’m in control.
I want people to look at me and assume I don’t eat
I want them to know, but I don’t want to tell them.
I want them to notice and watch worriedly while I decline food
I want them to be scared for me and subtly￼ try to get me to eat.
I want them to care,
But at the same time...
I want to waste away in peace without anyone noticing,
Cheek bones slowly growing more and more visible as the days go by
Sweaters growing bigger and bigger until they ￼ engulf me.
Legs growing farther and farther apart
I want people to ignore it and just let it happen, let me keep going, wasting away until I inevitably ￼disappear.
I just wanna disappear
But at the same time... I just don’t want to hurt anyone but myself.
