When will she wake up?
She’s alive, but really not
Waiting by her side

Placebo:

(Plus the word just sounds cool)

1. A usually pharmacologically inert preparation prescribed more for the mental relief of the patient than for its actual effect on a disorder

2. An inert or innocuous substance used especially in controlled experiments testing the efficacy of another substance (as a drug)

3. Something tending to soothe

The room was not big, but it did serve its purpose. The walls had little decoration, merely a white and gray horizontal pattern on all four walls. From the door, one looked in at a bed, with two side tables, and also a small couch to the left of the closer table. On the other side of the farther table was another door. That door led to the bathroom, which had silver pipes running along the walls, providing support for patients using the toilet, sink, and shower. In the middle of the bathroom was a red string attached to the ceiling. Pulling the string called for help, and within seconds, a nurse would run in to assist. This was all the room had to offer, but it was all that was needed.
