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

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
