Severus tried meditation, but the closest he came to giving his mind a rest was levitating over his bed in the lotus position—eating noodles while aurally bathing himself in loud, angry music. Even music, however, could not drown her screams.

Drugs could, after a fashion, but they didn't bring rest, and nor did sleep; Severus could always hear her, and he could never stop wondering why she hadn't taken the baby and run.

Potter should never have put her in such a—

I love how you begin with such a humorous image--it's such a startling contrast to what comes after and puts the reader off balance...maybe kind of like Snape is. Aw, but poor Severus. :(
