    Conscious about weight and looks.

    Conscious about weight and looks.

    She is my sister, my best friend – She is my sister, my best friendI love her but i only watch.. 

    I watch her scroll down her phone

    For ways to loose weight

    I watch her squeeze herself into one even two corsets 

    to shape her waist.

    I watch her 

    I watch all the weightloss aids sitting on the counter,
    judging her for having that extra weight.

    I watch her scroll past dresses in fear of emphasizing her waist. 

    I watch her

    I watch the world squeeze her life with corsets and drain her happiness with pills. 
    I watch her being held on that leash

    Getting whipped by a guilty conscience everytime she bites into a cake. 

    She is my sister, my best friend
    I love her, but i only watch

     I help her tie her corsets with a smile asking her if it’s too tight,

    it crushes me..

    Not saying anything at all, i only watch

    But when i look in the mirror out of shame , i realise I am the same
