If you believe
You have no fear
No longer ever
ill-at-ease
You rest too heavily
On your laurels.

If you feel
You have no feeling
Of being an imposter
I will make you
Laugh with nervousness
Uncomfortable tones
Can’t be denied.

For —

It excites me
To make you nervous.
It invigorates me
To see you unearthed
Awakened from
Your safe slumber.
Burried beneath
Your meloncoly.

You may be Goliath
A demi-god
Standing atop
An Athenian mountain,
You may proclaim
You are a narcisist
But —

You are not as headstrong
As a horse.
Your bared teeth
Bring me no fear.
You bleed red blood
The same as me.

And I believe
We can each
Shine brighter, dear.
