Road to recovery

Things I don’t do anymore
Don’t stay awake till gone past four
Don’t check my rings on Apple Watch
Don’t tighten my belt another notch
Don’t weigh myself morning and night
Don’t check to see if I’m a sight
Don’t stop myself on route to fridge
Don’t wear the clothes I know won’t fit
Don’t fuss so much about my hair
Don’t worry if people stop and stare
Don’t censor all my thoughts inside
Don’t tell anyone that I still cry
Don’t watch TV when I can’t sleep
Don’t make a plan that I won’t keep
Don’t know if I’m bored or is this cured
Don’t think about it anymore
Don’t stay awake till gone past four

The Time Thief

I don’t want to live a lie.

I hide in bed, don’t sleep, just cry.

Another day to hide away,

Let it slip for another day.

~

This lethargy that holds me back,

Stops me getting back on track.

That makes me sit and rot all day,

Stops my plans, gets in the way…

~

Tomorrow I’ll be stronger.

I’ll become a true “belonger”.

I’ll clean and shop and wash the dishes,

Be a friend and grant some wishes!

Do the stuff that should be done…

~

I don’t want to live a lie.

I hide in bed, don’t sleep, don’t try.

Another day to hide away,

I’ve let it steal another day!
