I Am Rebel

Rookie (Brumtown)

Chameleon


i am a chameleon
you don't see the real me
i change around you
so you cannot hurt me any more than you already have

i am a chameleon
this is just the surface
it protects the feelings beneath
feelings you've so callously cast aside

i am a chameleon
a deceiver, its just who i am
i have chosen to hate you
for the pain you've caused with your words

i am a chameleon
the truth behind this lie
is a closely guarded secret from you
Because i can't trust you anymore

i am a chameleon
i hide my true emotions
mask them with anger
because then noone gets too close

i am a chameleon
and its my choice to be so
i like this other personality
it keeps the pain at bay

but you know, i cant believe i gave you a chance
i dont know why i did that
gave you an opening, a window, into my life
i was stupid to think i could trust you
you threw that in my face, and it hurts
but i am a chameleon
so you'll never see it

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
