The Circle

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
