A Bad Relationship

Everyone is appalled
"I can't believe she'd stay with someone for that long"

That's an abusive relationship,
they say
You really need to get out of it,
they say

But how is she supposed to escape something she created
Locked in the grasp of the only constant in her life
Scared to leave what's comfortable

I brought this on myself,
she says
I have to suffer the consequences,
she says

Don't worry,
says the Eating Disorder

I'm not going anywhere.
