What if stars didn't possess the ability to reflect light?

What if every TIME you look up at the night SKY so dreamy eyed and tongue tied, all you see...is darkness.

A black so DEEP and COLD it rivals the ice in your HEART that won't thaw no matter how many beds you warm.

No starlight, no moonlight, no light in your eyes, no light in your smile, the STREETLIGHTS...are blinding.

A world so intent on knocking you DOWN, throwing you AROUND, your only solace is looking up at the sky and realizing you're part of something much BIGGER than yourself.

Your problems don't seem to matter amidst those shimmering celestial beacons.

But what if stars...didn't possess the ability to reflect...light?
