Today we have a guest post from Madeleine Owens over at The Introverted Raconteur!!!

One moment,
A typicality,
Then panic strikes.
From nowhere,
Darkness slowly creeps along the back wall of my mind.

“How could this happen?”
I scream violently at no one.
I’m searching for
Someone to
But all I find is this:
I’m alone.

Nothing but black.
Black skies and a black heart.
Sudden sobs attack.
Shoulders shake.
Two words.
“Why, God?”

Tears pouring down my face.
I grasp at anything that
I pray will hold my weight.
The weight of

How could a good and lovely being,
Let me suffer?
He sees me,
But nothing happens.
Oh, God.
Where is my rescue?

I face the darkness.
Staring up into the night,
Silently I beg.
“If you’re up there,
please save me.”

I let my head fall.
“He let me down,” I whisper.
I feel a gentle breeze sweep across my tear stained cheek.
No, I didn’t.
Out of the corner of my eye.
A sparkle.

I look up.

A star.

Light has pierced through the darkness.
Barely believing my eyes, I turn.
Has he come through?
A resounding ‘yes’ beats in my heart.

There is Starlight.
