Dangerous Game

Dangerous Game

Iconic image splash the page.
Sunken eyes,
violet, dry lips,
natural grace, such a beautiful face.

Elegant and ageless.
Every boys dream.
Gaunt and thin,
counting every rib.

Millions of dollars from silk and cashmere.
Skeletons on display,
stalk down the catwalk,
all emotions erased.

Idea of beauty,
an industry must change.
Young girls mimic,
this dangerous game.

If you or someone you know have an eating disorder contact national eating disorders to find help and support. You are not alone.

With much love,
