I enjoyed this piece. Favorite verses were the last two.
And I recognized something of a reference to Counting Crows too: Wick-thin and wax-white, Coffee black and egg white. :)
Anyways, I wrote a poem similar to the theme presented here; it's called "My Dear Ana" Hope you'll read it, maybe, possibly...feedback would be extremely appreciated since you seem to be a coherent and competent writer. AND you're not just some young kid who thinks writing "is cool" and does it to get noticed and then leaves the art like it is a trend.
Anyways, I hope to hear back from you.

"she is/wick-thin and/wax-white, burning/without a light, so
/being pretty must suffice"
Words cannot do this justice.
"I want her to be in pain."
I love this to death.
Your metaphors are so beautiful.

I have to say, I have never read a poem about anorexia that was worthwhile, until now. You get across your message without cliches or forcing anything on the reader. It's simple and elegant, and thank you for sharing it.

This is elegant, delicate, beautiful, and disturbing all at once. I loved every word of this, and I’m adding it to my favorites. Keep up the amazing work.

Wow... very good. Very deep, very elegant.

I love how the idea is described in such a way that it casts a kind of individual glow over anorexia, detecting in it a fine, almost indistinguishable brand of Quiet grace. *accolades* Beautiful work.

God, this makes me want to scream...you pull off the sadism-or is it envy?-well with the admiring but sickening imagery and that haunting, delicate voice. The disease isn't glorified here, but it's still taken seriously, which is much appreciated. wow.

so many images here... so well painted, all of them-especially the one about her eyes. yes this is alarming, but it's also brilliant *applauds*

God, that was powerful. I was holding my breath by the end. I love all your imagery- if I tried to list all my favorite lines I'd end up copy-and-pasting the entire poem. This is a delicate, intricate topic and I'm glad you chose an original and emotional approach. Really, really great job.
