Somewhere a baby is screaming
I stand still
Listen
My brain kicks in and tells me to find the baby
I start walking towards the screams
I peek in every room
Nothing
No baby.

Somewhere a child is crying
Softly this time
Listen
You can almost hear words underneath the sobs
Now I want to find the child
But I can't.

Why are they hiding from me?

I start to run
Frantically searching
I want to help
Then I notice the silence
I stop
Listen
It swallows me.

The baby
The child
Where did they go?
Where did I go?
