Circle of Fire

circle-of-fire

Standing in this circle,

Fire all round,

No way out ---- no way in,

For me to be found,


Wondering, in the circle,

Why, Oh, why, I´m Here.

Fire all around me,

I stand alone in fear.


Flames are licking nearer,

Take my breath away,,

Close my eyes and wonder,

Will I see another day?,


Standing in the circle,

Fire all around,

Beginning to believe,

I never will be found.

Dan Barfield from Gloucestershire, England, UK on November 27, 2012:

Nice imagery sir - keep up the good work :)

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 24, 2012:

And exactly right you are, Sir.

Much as we love History. this had nothing to do with witch hunts or similar.

Metaphorical poem Thank you for you kind words about it..

Alastar Packer from North Carolina on November 24, 2012:

It doesn't quite seem a heretic at the stake from the 16th century but what it does seem is a nightmare of hopelessness so well expressed in your fiery poetic style friend, Dim.

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 22, 2012:

OOOH! Thank you so much. What a beautiful accolade from such a great writer as yourself.

Eiddwen from Wales on November 22, 2012:

Dearest Blossom, I had no intention of reminding you of frightening fires......

Thanks for leaving a lovely comment.

Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on November 21, 2012:

Because I live in a dry land where bush-fires often rage in the summer I saw this as someone literally surrounded by fire and found it very frightening - nowhere to escape. The feelings it must engender are told beautifully in your poetry.

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 21, 2012:

Thank you JanHorner, for not only reading and commenting, but for summing up exactly how I felt at one time. These few words covered it and you spotted that perfect truth "alone" said it all.

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 21, 2012:

Dear Matter99,

"smooth" is a pretty cool compliment. Thank you.

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 21, 2012:

Hi mckbirdbks... Always grateful for your comments. Thank you very much.

This is how I once felt, but as they say in India.. "This too shall pass".. and it did.

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 21, 2012:

xstatic....... That´s a wonderful comment from where I´m sitting.

Thank you.

A poem of feeling alone is how this comes across to me. Beautifully penned, voted up,

Martin Kloess from San Francisco on November 20, 2012:

Smooth. Really well put together. Thank you.

mckbirdbks from Emerald Wells, Just off the crossroads,Texas on November 20, 2012:

You have certainly described the feeling of things closing in on a person. Perhaps the winds will change course and resolve this.

Jim Higgins from Eugene, Oregon on November 20, 2012:

Beautiful poetry!

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 20, 2012:

Hi Cleaner3, You are so loyal in your support of me, I must thank you.

I love the poem form of a comment. It was great.

Dim Flaxenwick (author) from Great Britain on November 20, 2012:

Good to see you, and no, this was just one of those things, you know when words fall out. As if from nowhere.

Truth is , I suppose I have felt this way at some time in my life.

Thanks for coming over to my page and commenting.

Take care.

SilverGenes on November 20, 2012:

Oh Dim, this is terrifying in it's beauty! You managed to convey such feeling in a few brief lines... I hope you are not feeling this way today.
