My Heart Hurts

My heart hurts
From lack of

I miss knowing
Where I was going
Or at least thinking I did

Didn’t used to
Think about it
At all actually
I just always knew
What to do next

But now
I need to know
Where I am going

That it’s a good
Way to go

That what I’m doing
Makes sense

I didn’t used to
Need so much

Probably a sign
Of weakness
That I need more now
Than I did
When life was stable

But now
That life is

Any sign
Any mile marker
Along the way
Is a life raft
My oxygen
A compass
That keeps me facing forward
Keeps me from losing my bearings

I didn’t used to need
A life raft
Or oxygen
Or a compass

Didn’t used to need much
At all
And I liked it
That way
