I am a devilish monster;
I suck the life out of my victims.
By telling them horrible lies,
I trick them into believing me.
I pretend to be their friend,
their asset and their honest advisor,
but in reality I am viciously leading them to their graves.
I turn their lives into living hell
and destroy everything that they hold dear.
They cannot see this however;
I have blinded their eyes to the truth.
I tell them they deserve to die
and then I watch them punish themselves
for things I've fooled them into thinking
were their fault.
I laugh at their stupidity for
I am their master.
They think they are controlling themselves,
But in reality I'm controlling them.
24/7 I control them.
They have the power within them to
defeat me but they do not know that.
As I continue to destroy their lives,
they shrivel away and again I have won.
I am a horrible devilish monster.
I am......... an eating disorder.
