I Lost to You

I Lost to You

Usually I can read my heart, 
Just sit there and listen to each word it softly utters, 
Understand what it asks for, 
Know all the secrets it hides. 
I knew I had control.

Now I feel lost.

The secrets that I once knew have been replaced,
Secrets now hidden from my ears,
Words lost to the sound of each beat,
Lost to the loud thud that I can only hear but cannot read.
What it asks for is now out of my control.

Neither do I know when you won,
Nor when I lost.
