It came from nowhere...suddenly my world was shaking.
I've had them before...know these tremors well...but this one was unexpected.
An earthquake in my heart.
The element of surprise adds to the shock...I thought I had done things so that this quake wouldn't hit me again...prepared myself. This one was deeper.
My attempts at repairing the damage from previous quakes fell in piles of rubble. I see it strewn all around me. Useless fumbling attempts at making it right...it's not.
Automatically I try to defend myself against the force that I perceive is threatening to engulf me... each time these tremors have come I've done it... defended myself... protected myself by pushing away. This time it was different.
I still feel it's force...raw...deep...strong
There is no defense to protect me this time.
Stunned, I survey the wreckage. Too dazed to comprehend it fully, yet trying to grasp the magnitude. So much waste...so many broken pieces.
I do the only thing I know... I call out to HIM, the cornerstone of my heart...
...the only thing left standing true
