In Small Circles (I Feel No Pain) - Poem by Kelly Vinal

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

    I used to liken it to keeping ones eyes firmly fixed on the grey paving stones, excellent poem.
