The screaming doesn't stop.
It rips through my head every second of every day.
It is a soul rending fusion of his tiny cries that left me too soon and my own broken howls.
Like a phantom limb; I can still feel him – little fingers curled around mine.
The loss surrounds me, crushes me, and suffocates me like the force of the ocean. The world has dimmed around me and I am drowning.
I can't breathe.
I can't see.
I can't escape it. The screams. The pain. The dark.
I want it to end.
I'm going to make it end.


A/N: Yeah, okay, I'm giving this a shot. Eeep!

And, yes, any of you mom-types paying attention, I am studying and writing my take-home exam. I woke up with this in my head yesterday, wrote it out before I was even really awake and didn't touch it again until I was watching Betty White kill it on SNL when I got home. Now, back to study!fail.

Thanks to IngenueFic for taking a look at this for me, daisy3853 for the encouragement, and justaskalice for the canon help.
