What chameleon’s charm is this
That which you fluidly display
With all such things gone amiss
Unscathed - you seem to slink away

Gracefully your wiles will mold
To fit your unsuspecting meals
Using promises of love to hold
Luring hearts near enough to steal

And when souls lay soft and pliable
Resting in your awaiting hands
They - no longer independently viable
Guarantee the consummation of your plans

Yea, Chameleon be merrily along your way
But be warned this – I am a bird of prey




 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.

Satiate,
There is more in this poem then meats the eye if you read between the lines and I did and enjoyed the read. Sy

Seems to me you have the eyes of an eagle and the soul of a poet.  Well done!

Everytime I read this...I find a new meaning hidden within...I thought it high time to reply to it...  


And when souls lay soft and pliable
Resting in your awaiting hands
They - no longer independently viable
Guarantee the consummation of your plans

Yea, Chameleon be merrily along your way
But be warned this – I am a bird of prey

Loved those lines....
