I Laugh
Author: Dragonsinger


i laugh with a crazy glitter in my eyes

this energy overwhelms me....
this energy
from the beautiful, dazzling emptiness
the purity that comes
with the burning clean of fasting

i run with a crazy glitter in my eyes

i dont need i dont want
i am strong
so strong
this glorious pain.... how it fills me!

i dream with a crazy glitter in my eyes

i feel light and pure and perfect
images dance in my head...
with ribs showing bright
and i know i am one
my wings are so delicate

i dance with a crazy glitter in my eyes

i have shown you, shown everyone
just how strong i can be
watch me shrink into nothingness...
i feel my bones
hear my bones

know my bones

and i breathe with a crazy glitter in my eyes

watch me die
watch me fade
with this razor-sharp strength
that i love
that i cherish
that i hate
that i loathe
but i know i cannot leave it....

i cry with a crazy glitter in my eyes

i float
somewhere far away...
we watch each other
you with your food
i with my hard-earned fragility
mocking right back

and i laugh

so bitterly, a laugh of pain
encaged cry for help
never to be answered

i laugh

with a crazy glitter in my eyes

Anorexia... my friend, my enemy. I need say no more.
