Skeleton (2015 Rework)

I want to be really thin,
Ribs showing;
A skeleton.
Really thin,
So nothing gets underneath my skin.

Want to be at home alone;
A hermit.
Shut everyone out,
Won’t let anyone in.
So no one can get underneath my skin.

Weight’s only a number but I’m cracking under the pressure
Of everything I used to be.
Deny all my hunger
To be a skeleton;
Someone help me please.
But they won’t get under my skin, I’ve made sure of it.

Hospital bound;
Much to my chagrin.
The sadness is welling up inside me,
Can no longer hold it in.
I’m just a skeleton.
Everyone’s gone,
And I have no body.
But I used to be somebody.

Nothing may get under your skin
When you’re worn thin to a skeleton.
But you’ll never survive,
You can never win;
‘Cus the world will only eat you alive.
