Black Box Interactions

She asked me if it was coming in from the sides
and that kind of question only meant one thing
I told her that everything would be okay
and she gave a little laugh and said "not likely"
She had been off her meds for almost three months
and told me daily about how good she felt
"My mind is unclogged" and "I can finally feel again"
and I purposely believed her because the alternative is way too sad
Nobody even noticed when she had restarted her meds
the doctors were exactly where we had left them
She tries to tell me that things are better now
and I think a hidden thought inside, "not likely"

Use a caring look to see past the abyss. It never really works now, does it?
