The Thing That Nobody Talks About

You know that thing?
The thing that nobody talks about?
Making yourself puke?
Yeah
I do that
It hurts
It burns
It destroys your teeth
But what they forget to tell you
In health class
Is that despite
Everything
You love it
You love it so much
You can't quit
It stays with you forever
Maybe that's why nobody talks about it
Because they think
That it'll stop
If nobody talks about it
Well
I'm talking about it
I'm telling you
"Stop."
You love it
For a while
Until
It rules your life
And then
You have to talk about it
Or else
You die
Maybe that's why nobody talks about it
Because
It can kill you
Maybe that's why
It's the thing that nobody talks about
