you can’t repel
better take another route
if his temptation you must avoid
your dream he will be
your fantasy to reality he will bring
your language he will speak
your sentiments he’ll share.
A chameleon, he can walk in any shoes
watch out, he might be in a garden near you
so as you search for tasty fruits and attractive flowers
remember you could just be attracting your own gloom
because you’re not the only one searching for him
and you’re not guaranteed of keeping him.

Nice word play. Poetic warning- sharp! A snake you can always feel amidst… if you just listen for the “hiss” he makes between his words 😉

Very good advice to those who will heed….nicely done. Heartspell
Can’t the opposite happen?
top work mate! really captures the elusiveness and mystique of this ‘chamelon’ that creates the attraction
you know everything and you find the most romantic or beautiful way of saying it.
Deep words that speaks to me on a personal level my friend!! Loved the line “remember you could just be attracting your own gloom”!! So happy to be here in your world again!! Awesome work my friend. Much love x
Oooohhh..speaking for (or against) Casanova huh !!!
Enjoyed this read…
“watch out, he might be in a garden near you” – this line totally rocked me!!! 🙂
I have found my chameleon.. but I know how to keep him! I married him, and now I pretend to be that chameleon (hushh… that’s a secret) 🙂 The pretense is real though! Love him too much for otherwise 🙂
Good to see you back in the blogging world, Emmanuel… Looking forward to more from you (soon hopefully)
hey man loving this post you really are very good, i’m going to put you on my blogroll!!!
I have met him Emmanuel. I have met him and sigh…
but this i not you. I know better. Your heart is true. Good to see you back again.
“Love the your language he will speak, your sentiments he’ll share., A chameleon, he can walk in any shoes,”
Those snakes in the grass charmers get me every time, sigh. Some of us just don’t see past the charm and charisma, the silvery tongue words, the chameleon shape. So I carry snake medicine with me just encase one is lurking in my garden, been bit too many times.
Hope your summer is going well miss your kindness around the blog land.
Ol’ snake in grass is crafty and looks to beguile those innocently wandering. Nice work!
WOW!!!! Strange and unbelievable… 😛
a really good writing… the warning , signs , hope , despair signs everything….
a fascination for me 😀
