Binge Eating Poem

Binge Eating Disorder

Food, food, everywhere 
everywhere I look
delicious food
disgusting food
food I want to cook

Often when I am angry
stressed, sad, misunderstood
I go to food for guidance
for company
for love

Food has rarely let me down
food never lies, cheats, or steals
However much I love it though
i never seem fulfilled

More, please more
my stomach tells my brain
you need the dopamine 
to last throughout the day

No, body no
I say
I think you have had enough

But i continue to eat anyway
for without love
food is just enough
