    Don't eat.
Take it easy.
        Work out until you pass out.
Get help.Tell someone.
            Keep it a secret. It's only for you and me.
You're perfect.
                You're worthless.
You're beautiful.
                    You're disgusting.
Why won't you listen?
                        They don't understand.
Let me help you.
                            You don't understand.
Show me.
I love you..
                                    You hate me.
Forget it.
I'm leaving.
                                            I told you.
                                                 I'm alone..
Logic has been defeated.

This really hits home. The battle that lies hidden, even the closest people to your heart can't see...
This has impact. Well done.

I love it! I feel like this can apply to anyone struggling with a battle in the mind, although I can see that its specifically about someone with an eating disorder.

Very good :)
I hope that because you have identified the lack of logic you are not falling for the tricks your mind plays.

The structure really fits the poem well, the lines move as the negative comments depart further from sensibility.

I saw this whilst trawling through what's new on deviantart, and I don't normally comment on anything, but this reminded me of something I read recently in a fantastic book called "Living With A Creative Mind". In that book it talks about the duality of a creative person's mentality and how we exist at both ends of the emotional spectrum. This is commonly misdiagnosed as bipolar when it is actually one of the very tools we use to create.
The ego means we can create confidently and the humility means we can change and adapt, meaning we can both make good things and continue to develop. If you ever get the chance, you should check it out, I personally found it very useful when trying to understand how I worked.
I feel like that sometimes. A part of me says something while the other part of me says something different.

Wow, nice work. I like how the italicized lines get further and further away as if alienating themselves. I hope this is just fiction, and not something you really struggle with. But if you do, you're not alone, and you're not worthless.
