You can never be ignored.
I try so hard to shut you out.
But you have your say anyway.
You’re never silent, you’re loud.
You watch my every move.
You judge me blatantly.
You interfere with my every thought,
And watch me unblinkingly.
But I can learn to live with you,
Even with all your faults.
If only you weren’t a chameleon
And changed hues so fast.
You look red and vibrant sometimes.
At times, you’re happy and yellow.
You’re dreamy and violet at times.
You’re morose and blue sometimes, though.
You confuse me greatly, at times
And are green with jealousy.
I get tired of managing your escapades.
You’re a constant cause of my worry.
Be still and take a breath, my friend.
Don’t make me tizzy, so.
Stay steady, O Chameleon.
Give me a chance to like you more,
MY FICKLE WATCHFUL HEART.
