Rough Seas
The Circle - Part IX - Ben, John and Pam.

The circle is silent, deep in their trance. 
John sees the small boat in rough seas again, 
But, the small details have changed at first glance, 
And the figure's a man who looks like Ben. 
In shock, John is snapped out of his vision 
And sees the tears rolling down Ben's stained cheek. 
"Ben", he roars, forces the boy's excision, 
As Pam stumbles, falls, too blind and too weak. 
Too late for Pam and John, and neither tried. 
Ben's gone forever, lost to suicide.
