Meet a girl named No One, with a heart of shattered stone
Staring at the other girl, the one that's not alone
Girl with skin that glistens, with the eyes of crystal seas
Grin of shining diamonds and a laugh like a disease
Flashes just a glance and soon, she's every trouble's cure
She has everything… and No One's off to be like her.

Eating turns into a crime, she'd rather be away
Thrusting fingers down her throat to make herself okay
Watching as her very bones are seen behind her flesh
There she drowns in tears, for she has not yet seen success.

Minutes turn to hours, and these hours turn to days
Every moment slipping, slowly fading into grey
Rapidly, her body turns to nothing but her bones
As she fights for beauty, as she battles for the throne.

Broken hearts must learn to beat, and this she came to know
Learning it the hard way when her heartbeat grew too slow
Yet, she somehow managed still to shine from what's within
Lying in her casket with her hidden, unseen sin.

Final thoughts inside her head scream through the broken skies
She had never reached her goal, the one that took her cries.
They never acknowledged how the torture was so rough
She was never beautiful… not beautiful enough…

This poem has a nice rhythm. I like how you captured the subtle feelings, not just the general ones.

You're really good at writing...like wow. I have been reading a lot of your work tonight and it's just.....good. A lot of it is good. I like how it all flows nicely and it makes so much sense. I relate to this one the most and ugh it's amazing. It makes me close my eyes and sigh and feel like....it's alright.....

Thank you!

oh i like this, i like this a lot, something about rhyming just makes me happy(sounds twisted since this is about an eating disorder). Aside from that the way you handle the topic isn't dreadfully cliche even if the topic has been done. You handle it well and the poem runs very smoothly. jeez this is just gorgeous. I could say more and ramble on like i'm a real critic, but i've said enough. just love this
