Hope is despoiled.
The pillowcase on my mother’s bed is stained with countless tears. And blood. Her blood. Brown and unbending. Refusing comfort. It whispers a morbid testimony of clutching fingers, jagged breaths. She buries her sobs in threadbare fabric as the ravager does unspeakable things. I know. Thin walls keep no secrets.
Pain is everlasting.
Last night she locked her door. The ravager thundered. Demonic fury. I didn’t think to. The bottles, empty now. A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because her children are no more. I swallow the powdered remnants.
Jeremiah 31:15 New International Version
