In Small Circles (I Feel No Pain)

In small circles, I feel no pain
The magic flows, imbues my brain
Turns my focus to the sky
I
Shall remain
Puerile dreams that drive the train
Deplete themselves by grain by grain
Wish me peace, a brief goodbye
I
Board again
And to these worlds I touch the rain
That falls upon this soul and stains
Does it rain or do I cry
I
Reach and strain
For dreams are driving me insane
Beyond my reach they shall remain
And as the numb becomes this nigh
I
Feel no pain

I love the way this flows - when heard in a man's voice, it makes me think of a soldier going off to war, and that makes me think of my Uncle. This poem has such a strong voice, trying not to falter, but still feeling a bit lost. This is a wonderful poem. -L.C.
I really enjoyed the rhythm of this poem.
I used to liken it to keeping ones eyes firmly fixed on the grey paving stones, excellent poem. L
