Does anyone ever wonder

why she never wears short sleeves

Does anyone wonder

why she never eats

She says it's too cold

It's been sunny all day

She says she isn't hungry

but her stomach is fading away

Her face is getting pale

It hurts when you touch her arm

She is always in the bathroom

She is always alarmed

She starts missing school

You have a bad thought in your head

Then you get a phone call

And you were right

She's dead

Did anyone notice

any one at all

That there were scars on her wrist

and she never ate at all
