His sheer walls

are hard to scale

and are truly not

worthy of the climb.

Yet strangely

they still come.


Some to save him

some to soothe him

some to steal him

some to seduce him

some to secure him

some to study him

and some to be his confidante.


Yet only those who seek

to serve him

are not certain

of disappointment.



I wrote and posted this a year ago. As much for the alliteration as anything else. It would be completely wrong of me to give the impression that there are many who would wish to make the climb. Or that it would be a worthwhile effort anyway.

    This piece is delightful. : )
    All of those reasons are worthy challenges (the confidante being my personal favorite, behind cherish). Disappointment is a part of life, simply savor the moments with him.

    I have those walls as well, but have no climbers desiring to climb. Never did. I wonder if they even see me? Whatever is visible must not be worth a glance. I let them down once. Sadly, I disappointed. The walls slowly rose up again. Both sides of these walls proved not to be worthwhile.
