The defining moment

How do you know what is missing
Until it cannot be found
Where blank spots have engulfed your colour
Darkness is all that you see and white noise has become your world
Does your heart ache for what is gone?
So what is your future?
If it is not now
You could languish in a stupour of ignorance but for the occasional window opening
A breeze of a memory…
Terror slams it shut turning you around dizzy and put on the spot
Panic flutters at the edges
The question begging
Is this all you’ve got?
No longer the ability to reason
That when you look in a mirror
Who or what is staring back?
That your humanity
Wanders the dessert searching for your soul
A body in name only
Where breath and heart beat exist
But to not know thus
Does this mean you are truly lost?
