Here I am, watch me shrink,
Into this disease I sink,
Hollow cheeks and pale grey face,
I forget how chocolate tastes.

Half a yoghurt, extra light,
No more food 'til Tuesday night,
Stare at every girl I see,
Is she skinnier than me?

In the mirror, haunted eyes,
Jutting bones and twig-like thighs,
I've never been this small before,
But why not lose a little more?

Here I am, please look fast,
I think this chance might be your last,
Dead beneath my empty skin,
The price to pay for being so thin.
