Softly She Moved

Softly she moved,

Wading among crowds. 

Noiselessly her feet went forward

Disturbing none, noticed by none. 

 

She walked in a hurry,

Yet graceful was her every move

Till she reached the place

She had been longing for.

 

She looked into the mirror

Ignoring her pretty eyes,

Noticing only the dark circles

Not seeing all her gentle beauty,

Concentrating only on her glaring flaws.

Blind to how frail her body was,

Her mind kept screaming, “fat!”

 

With a whimper, she turned away

From her worst enemy and best friend

And rushed into the bathroom

Her head bent forward.

 

She stuck two fingers into her mouth

And brought out everything that had gone in

Only after there was nothing left,

Did she finally stop.

 

She washed her mouth

And stepped outside

Feeling a little bit more satisfied, 

And yet a lot emptier.

 

Softly she moved,

Wading among crowds

Noiselessly her feet went forward

Disturbing none, notice by none.
