Syriaic words?

Words for/from anyone under siege, really.

My anguish, my anguish! I writhe in pain!
Oh, the walls of my heart!
My heart is beating wildly;
I cannot keep silent;
for I hear the sound of the trumpet,
the alarm of war.
Disaster overtakes disaster,
the whole land is laid waste.
Suddenly my [house, garage, and shop] are destroyed,
my [walls] in a moment.
How long must I see the [war-flag],
and hear the sound of the trumpet?

— Jeremiah 4:19-21

**

Disaster overtakes disaster,
like the waves following a hurricane

and you’re standing, choking, in the surf.
