The Circle

November 3, 2005

Outside the circle
Watching every move
you make
Inside the circle
Confident, sure,
larger than life
Large hands
grasping small ones
Picking up,
dusting off,
trying again

Outside the circle
Wishing to be a part
Not daring to step in
Seeing the surface
Hungering
Inside the circle
Lean face
Quiet
Strength

Outside the circle
Each hour staring
Waiting
Yearning
Cold
Outside the circle, me
Inside, you

This time
Outside the circle
seeing
knowing
Inside the circle
filled, laughing,
proud
Perfection

Outside the circle
Joy for you
Alienation
Inside the circle
Them

The last time
Outside the circle
You
looked
I knew you knew
Eyes locked
Intensity
Inside the circle
Like a wake behind you
They came

You stepped in
I stayed out
