Day after day, you open your eyes and close them. Repetitive motion keeping the body and the mind going the distance - but only just barely.
Conversations are had and forgotten. No need to remember when they'll be exactly the same the next day.
Running, running, and nowhere to go. Repetitive motion is standing still and attempting to keep the mind from going that one step beyond its endurance - but only just barely.
You breathe, you listen and nod. You laugh when you're supposed to. It helps hide the repetitive stillness that sets bone deep, but it doesn't help.
