Skinny

Chapter 1

Chapter 1

by: Cosmiic
Maybe I would be less sad,
If my hips curved out instead of my waist,
and my hipbones were like a valley over my stomach.

Maybe I could stop avoiding my reflection,
if my cheeks were sucked in and my cheekbones cut through my skin.

One day my skin will stretch taught against my ribs,
so you could see the corrugated ridge of each bone.

Maybe if I skip breakfast this morning,
my thighs might separate.

Maybe if I don't eat lunch,
my spine will curve out.

I could un-eat dinner, perhaps,
so maybe stomach would be flat as a ruler.

Maybe if I was a skinny girl,

You would love me back.
