"Excuse me as I disappear into nothingness. My hollow bones sing wild songs of freedom while the tempered hearts of wanting take leave of me."
Annalise Grey uses free-verse poetry for two voices in this semi-autobiographical account of eating disorders and the inner turmoil which walks hand-in-hand with self-abuse.
