Being Anorexic By Terry Killeavy

Popular Poems

As I sat on our park bench
I longed to look like that Dawn French
But cos' I'm ill and far too light
People think I'm just not right
But it's an illness, I should know
Because I've never felt this low
And when I see those catwalk queens
They look like me, when I'm in jeans
But they are loved and chased with glee
But no one wants to talk to me

So when I'm well and getting strong
I won't be thin, well not for long

And when I'm asked what skinny is
I'll say don't go there, this is bliss
