Maniacal Numbers

I scratch at my rib cage Nails clawing at my skin As if I could scrape away The extra weight I feel I've gained It's like the devil's inside of me He's disfiguring my bones I fall to my aching knees God make him leave me alone Trapped inside my eyes I'm screaming The numbers on my scale are screeching Their maniacal laughter devours my dreams Someone save me I'm afraid to sleep -ARI
