Anorexia

Dear Ana,

I know,

I know I failed,

I know I should have done better.

I know, I know, I know.

I’ll find you one day, I promise.

I almost had you, but I let go.

I let them take you away from me.

I was so close, we were so close.

I’m so sorry. I’ll do better. I promise.

When I was alone, you were there.

When I was afraid, you were there.

When I wanted the world to disappear, when I wanted to disappear, you were there.

And I let you down. I left. I pushed you so far.

But here I am again. I’ll do better.

I promise.

With all my love,

The girl who wasn’t good enough. The one who will make things better. I promise.
