Amanda Estelle Réhel
She is sharp edges
He is round curves
They sit opposite
They both are crushed
Of their hatred
They stare at what they can’t control.
They feel towards themselves
From the pictures surrounding them on every wall
The looks passing by them,
The inability to fit into a washroom stall
Or eat in front of people,
To only find clothes that make them look like a bag,
Either empty or full.
The inability to fit into this world,
Big or small.
They sit opposite each other.
But seeing the same pain
Reflected in one another’s eyes.
And don’t speak.
