Does anyone ever wonder
why she never wears short sleeves
Does anyone wonder
why she never eats
She says it's too cold
It's been sunny all day
She says she isn't hungry
but her stomach is fading away
Her face is getting pale
It hurts when you touch her arm
She is always in the bathroom
She is always alarmed
She starts missing school
You have a bad thought in your head
Then you get a phone call
And you were right
Did anyone notice
any one at all
