This Place is Supposed to Make Her Better?
Her sister is 15 minutes away and she only sees her once a week
She walks over to her in the mental hospital
Temporary home that smells like bad food
Beds that are as thin as the smile her sister wears
She says it feels like a punishment in there
Somehow her suicide attempt was more bad behavior
Than mental illness
Temporary home, but she’s restricted on what she wears
Restricted on when to eat, and sleep, and even to go outside
More like temporary, home is missing in the aspect
Her sister nearly cries when she spends the hours with us
The paper thin smile trembles
When she’s in the car for a pass with us she seems healthy
Cured for a few hours
Temporary home, mental hospital, whatever
She’s somewhere where behavior comes before the illness
You don’t get the help unless you’re good.
