Eating Disorder in the Modeling Industry ~ poem by Linette Cruz

Walk.

That is all I need you for, nothing more.

Put that plate down, you don't need it.


I tell you when to open your mouth, don’t you dare.


Don’t say a word.

You are mine.

This is my place.

You are just a thing in it.


Just water, you understand, THAT’S ALL!


Head up, back straight, look pretty.


YOU ARE NOT THIN ENOUGH, SO STOP EATING!


Stop stuffing your face and maybe, you’ll be good enough.


L.C.
