Eat, Sleep and be Merry

Sounds simple right?
Wrong.

When you don't see your body but a blubbery whale
Thighs expanding by the minute, suffocating your mind
Seeing your grandma's arms jiggle as she grabs another cookie
Eating is too difficult.

When you're dreams are twisted and dark, with fathers who lie and mothers who cheat
Siblings that die and friends that are sick
The true monsters in my brain only reveal themselves at night.
Sleeping is too difficult.

When your mind is consumed by a very dark demon
Thoughts of pain, hate and death overtake your brain
Who could be happy in such a cruel ruel world
Being merry is too difficult
