Shrinking Bodies

And I thought that if I avoid eating,
I will finally get thin.
My body will shrink,
like a balloon pressed out of air.

Eventually, I did.

I shrunk, slowly,
painfully,
unknowingly,
until I was all out of air,
until all the huge clothes fall out of my shoulders,
until I can no longer see,
until I disappeared,
completely.
