losing john

I am lacking a serious intent,
Shackled to loss.

I did not know you were a compass.

The pale labyrinth day
Curls around itself and
Everything returns to you,

Hiding behind everyday music,
Until I return home,
Released and unrestrained.

You did not remind me that
I needed you, and only now
Do I realize that I am deaf.

Burdened and buried
Dazed, standing at an edge
You never saw,

Here it is, alone.
