my father
looks at me across the dinner table and
asks me 
if i've been eating lately
and my mother (beside me) joins his stare with hers
and reduce me to ashes with only 
their eyes 
as daddy talks about a girl 
he used to know who
starved herself to death  

i look down at my plate and
reassure them
(i throw my food away in the end 
anyway)
and nearly cut my finger on 
my razorblade collarbone
and knife-edge hips

i am sharp
but not brittle
i can tear down cities with a bat of my eyes
(the same ones you burn me with)
i will not soften my edges for 
soft people who don't want to cut themselves 
on my angles and blades
underestimate me not
i was born to open throats

i've seen what starvation does
to those who starve
and felt the vice
of those who love the starving
don't assume you know more of that 
particular brand of heartbreak 
just because you don't know
what I've felt in my short time
here.
tw: anorexia mention, self harm

today was lovely, can you tell?

I was expecting something completely different with the title, but this actually made me sit down and think.
Thank you.

You're more than welcome, Rai.  This was mostly just a rant in poem form, but I'm glad you took something away from it.
May I ask what affected you?

Pretty much everything, to be honest.

Mm.  I get it.

//pats face// Are you okay lately?  I feel like I don't ask as often as I ought to.

If anything, I should be asking YOU that, more than I have been.

Mm.
I'm really fine, I just got fed up with my parents last night.  Please don't worry about me,  I was being overdramatic.
