my first post here.. ladder i am but a ladder, but not for others. ( i stand under others, no. but, i stand under me, yes. yes, me understands i, but, no others understand i. ) a trophy yet an achilles heel a prized acquaintance, but a loose change companion (i shall never succeed at my quest for acceptance unnoticed do my works go, they are never above-adequate) dull in the seclusional shadows i cling to if only light were shed on me, i would shimmer yes i'd shimmer, but only in my dreams for i stray from light, and it hides from me (we were never meant, only maybe others the benefit benefit the others, maybe only meant, never were we.) pain shows emotion, and i shy to not impress more, any less self, not am i i am not selfless anymore, impress not, too shy. i, and emotion shows pain i am of fault, and guilt is a lonely pleasure damned if i allow popularity demean integrity too steep is the empty balcony to my happiness (a broken whisper reminds me that the void will go unfilled yearning for anyone to join my side in this journey) i am but a ladder, but not for others.
