Tears For My Baby by Russ Victorian

The plot of this mother living alone with her baby child in the Northwood�s is fictional, yet hardly unbelievable as its occurrence is almost certainly frequent. But the death of the baby, and the enduring story of the mother�s battle to deal with her loss, takes a twist through the dark pines like a tale told while seated around a bonfire late at night. There was a forest where twice I heard the sound of a crying baby in the moonlit hours. It may have been an animal. But the sound drew me in. I found myself deep in a cedar swamp. I took photographs as I stumbled through it. In one photograph, a strange apparition appeared. I have been shooting photography for many years. I am familiar with white spots on my photos, but in this case, there was no way to explain it. And ever since, I choose to identify with this unexplainable apparition as my sighting of the Crying Baby Ghost. Believe what you will, but the story you are about to read is something I kept inside me for years. I picked it up that day while wandering about the dark swamp. It connected its self to me like the seed of a wildflower or that of a weed. It grew inside me for years until the 22nd of January 2012, when I could no longer keep the story inside me. This short story touches on the extremely sad and tender moments when a mother loses a child. I just want people to know this before they continue reading in case this type of material causes you distress.
