Stairway to Revelation

I left my shoes on the first flight step,
a symbol of how steady my love is for you.

My matching socks were left on the second flight,
a sign of my equivalence to you.

The belt I thought you liked I laid on the third flight step,
as it depicts how tied my emotions feel towards you.

My trousers were left on the fourth flight,
these my love symbolise how my heart flares for you.

My shirt I left upon the fifth flight step,
to show I would give everything off my own back to you.

That leaves me on the sixth flight step,
nearly naked and exposed.
All these things I feel and would do for you,
I look down to see there is no you.
All these symbols I hoped would give you the sign,
have fallen on closed ears and eyes.
I reach for the railings fraught with pain,
I feel like my heart is going to strain.
How could I love you for so long,
and not see that you never saw me all along?
