One More Bite

One more bite won’t keep the pain away,

One more bite isn’t going to make you happy,

One more bite isn’t going to make you forget.

 

You think you can leave your sorrows behind,

A pile of wrappers, cascading over your garbage can.

The mixture of peanut butter and chocolate isn’t as great as it seems,

You rip the wrapper, realizing too late that it won’t help,

You tell yourself it is too late, you have to eat it now.

 

One more bite won’t satisfy your hunger,

One more bite isn’t going to change where you stand

One more bite isn’t going to make your stomach stop cramping.

 

You think that you can eat your way out of life,

Keeping your secret hidden away,

Only eating by yourself,

You sit with the covers pulled up to your chin,

crumbs trickling off the worn pink blanket onto the floor.

 

One more bite won’t make you any thinner,

One more bite isn’t going to change that you are alone,

One more bite isn’t going to take back all of your mistakes.
