"My dear, I think you are shrinking!"

No, you just spend too much time drinking…

"No, I pass the time by thinking!"

Then it's just in your head…

"You are already dead! It's odd talking to a living corpse…"

I breathe your air! I walk your ground! I speak your words!

"Do you drink my sustenance, eat my food, Because, your words taste like repentance!"

I beg to differ!

"I want to see you beg on your knees!"

I want an apology, please!


Could a corpse do this?

"You have a weak punch."


"You have a mediocre kick, just look how you hunch!"

Why don't you fight?

"I don't take candy from children."

That's not funny, it's not! I'm here! I'm in your sight!

"No,  you've already left"

Come again?

"Give it back. You have till the count of ten!"

    Abuse in any form is something to be fought..tooth and claw, it is intolerable! Congrad's on your Serious verse winning. This is an important issue to draw attention too. Light & Love

    Thank you. I wrote this my junior year in high school, when someone I loved had to go to an eating disorder clinic for a few months.
