‘Body Dysmorphia’ By KT

Rocking back and forth.
It’s kind of therapeutic
Trying to figure out what’s wrong with me.
Picking at my scabs
Do they really itch,
Or do I just want to pick?
I kind of want the scar.
Just 10 more lbs.
I’m currently at 185 lbs.
I can’t remember the last time I was this small.
Clothes fit me right,
But I still want them big.
Comfy and cozy.
No one can see what I’ve achieved.
I am proud of myself.
It took a lot to get here.
But I still feel incomplete.
What else do I need to do?
To feel okay with myself,
And be able to fall asleep at night.
