(A mother can’t seem to turn off the light for her child to sleep)

She wouldn’t stop crying and I was feeling exhausted. I’d tried almost everything: telling tales, embracing and soothing her down, but to no avail. What really puzzles me when I’m with her is that she won’t even look at me. Not a word will she utter either and, instead, she keeps her eyes intently fixed upon an undefined spot somewhere above my head.

I’m scared. I feel sad and miserable too. I see that uncanny halo again, like a permanent mist that blurs even the most tangible things. I saw it too when we all kissed grandpa goodbye in hospital. But now it is all over mum.
