You were a giant to me so I offered you praise

Towering pillars hung with vines and soft fruit

Trying to climb as high, I fell to my knees

You were unreachable

I cried

Tears of inadequacy

Until one day I caught you, dullard

Scales revealing fears stacked like cards

Hidden from view I picked up my pen to slay you
