Full, so full 

Yet also so empty 

Some days I eat and eat  

Hoping to close the hole in my chest 

Other days I spew up everything inside me 

Trying to rid myself of the disgusting feeling 

My brain overpacked with loud voices 

Just like my mouth is overpacked with food 

My eyes overflowing with tears  

Just like my stomach overflowed with food 

I fill myself with food to close the deep painful hole 

And then hurl it all back up out of shame  

My body stuffed 

But my mind starving.
