like a chameleon

dedicated to, the one who holds my heart

 

 like a chameleon
 
i’m a chameleon lifeless in winter’s white
in summer’s warmth I glowed love’s pink
for when first I saw you,  I first loved you
poems of intrigue and beguile in your eyes
 
only the radiant  pictures in my mind
do I have to keep me warm as winter snips
the bouquet of you away from the heart of me
far across the way… apart I’m forced to stay
 
oh the nights are long and it’s with you I belong
will the magic of possibilities send you my way
like a chameleon in winter I’m forced to conceal
what this aching heart of me knows is real
 
destiny is the hunter who holds my mastery
far across the way…apart I’m forced to stay
white sands and moonlight arm in arm call
with you I’d stand… a man prideful and tall
 
i’m a chameleon dead in winter’s white
for when i first saw you I first loved you
poems of intrigue and beguile in your eyes
oh the nights are lonely and you’re not here

Jon,

This is so beautiful, as usual. But so sad. I love the way you've written this.

Oh my ...I felt this poem from the top of my head to my toes! To know this feeling and not be able to express it to the one you have wrote about, is a winter in itself. I pray a fireplace of warmth to come to you and melt away this winter feel, so you will know the warmth of an angel brought forth from this chameleon...

Amazing!

Words never rung so true in my heart.....wish i could tell the one i love this poem, but he's currently very mad at me so not even going to try.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
I sense a slipping away that always occurs in time. Beautifully worded in the changing colors of the chameleon. May the winter hold off much longer, and the summer roll around again, very soon.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside
Beautiful repetition of images and phrasing here, Jon Michael, which wonderfully endorses the central metaphor of the now-you-see-me-now-you-don't of the chameleon. I love the nouance of the stilled creature "lifeless in winter's white" which paints such a profound and stirring picture of absence, loss and haitus. Truly unique, bless you. xx
Reviewed by John Flanagan
the sense of longing reaches and touches
deep, the sense of unrequited love stirs
the reader's heart; the chameleon, once love's pink,
now lifeless in white is a stark change and one hard
to accept but there's no holding back in this poem,
there is no compromise - the integrity of the poet
is here from first to last

a fine work, Jon, My Friend, fine indeed
