Thank You

I was talking to Paul tonight,
And his dad said, "Doesn't she have friends of her own?"
and i wanted to scream with all my might.
Instead, i just hung up the phone.

There was something about that line
that had triggered something in my mind.
For me to cry tear after tear,
did he think i wouldn't hear?

I cry like this everyday,
all because of what people say.
They don't realize that i cry, though.
I guess you can say i put on a good show.

As i'm there on the phone crying,
Paul asks if i'm okay,
I say yeah, but he doesn't know i'm lying.

As i try to eat my problems away.
I know they won't disappear,
by eating another 'Payday'.
So, i shed one more tear.

I feel fat, after eating the entire bag.
I know at first, i will gag.
But sooner or later, my body has to give.
Bulimic Nervosa is the only way i know how to live.

My boyfriend was the only one who knew.
I guess you guys now know too.
This so called "Eating Disorder" i have, i don't regret.
But why the f**k do you care? We never met.

You have no reason to care.
Its only my life story that i am willing to share.
but you only know half the tale.
Sitck around and ill soon unveil.

My ex-boyfriend cheated on me.
He said he loved this one girl more.
Come to find out, she was known as the biggest whore.

But who cares now?
That was a year ago.
I just cant see how
he wanted a hoe?

But now i'm dating this one guy.
He's outgoing and i am shy.
He has great qualities,
except for he doesn't talk to me.

I call him on the phone,
So then we can talk, just us alone.
But when he doesn't pick up the line,
one question pops into my mind:

Why doesn't he wanna have a conversation?
Without him, it's like i'm dying from suffocation.

Doesn't he realize that i need him around?
Without him, it's feels like i'm already dead.
That i've been buried into the ground
from a gunshot to the head.

We did talk yesterday,
but not for long.
There wasn't much to say.
Sometimes i wonder if there's anything wrong.

My brother calls me obesed
but he'll regret it, once i am deceased.
He says when i walk, it's like earthquakes in the ground.
But how can that be when i'm only 92 pounds?

At school one day,
this kid walked into me
when i was in the hallway.
Apparently, he didn't see.

Either that, or he just didn't care.
He didn't even say sorry, but he did give me a glare.
Like it was all my fault.
I wish this sh*t would come to a hault.

When something goes wrong for you,
I"m the first one you blame,
Cause it"s the easiest thing to do.
You know what? F**k off. You don't even know my name.

Just like you, no one else seems to care either.
Except for this one guy.
His name,his name is Seizure

very good...

It really illustrates several points of your life. Someone that didn't know you should now have a pretty good understanding. Good job.

Thanks also for the shout out.
