Next comes medication.
In The Grey Cas Reeves 2012 The darkness and the light They just seem to intermingle. All is grey; all is mute, There’s no sunshine and no night. Beige and cream and soft blues, No black to take me home. Mornings and evenings But no midnight and no noon. I never see the sun Or the moon. Medicated to be calm Take a pill; it’s a charm. Go to the doctors, Get a needle in the arm. Do not think outside the circle It’s there to keep you sane. Do not feel, do not feel all your pain. Maybe twilight, maybe dawn, But never sunshine or night, Stay in the middle, Grey is right. Two plus two equals four no more, Do not say how much you’re hurting, Keep it all inside. Quiet child, quiet child, Find somewhere to hide. Do not let yourself be seen, Wrap your arms around your heart. In the grey, in the grey, Live dead in the day.
