Since we're at the point where people are posting their own poem threads, I thought I'd make one for my poems.

I know it's been a while since I shared any poems, but as I've got a lot of ideas for poems and it's just a matter of writing out words to express those ideas, I want to return to it.

A swirling from within its mind
A danger sensed, the unknown kind
Reflexively it transforms its skin
So to its surroundings, it blends in

Often days spent lounging about
Slowly breathing in and out
Now it waits for the danger to pass
Moving less than a blade of grass

The unknown entity does draw near
Into the lizard’s vision, from the rear
A danger it is not, but rather prey
A fly has passed it on this day

Patiently does it wait in hiding
Its time it is silently biding
Waiting for the time to strike
To catch a treat it will certainly like

The witless prey is in position
Nothing can stop the lizard’s mission
With a flick of its tongue, the fly is gone
The motion fast and the tongue long

It looks around for anything more
Unconvinced of what its sense was for
Perhaps there was something different out there
Something of which it was unaware

It glances around in all directions
Never lingering on certain sections
It even looks directly behind
And in that place, a bizarre find

It hopes for a mere moment that
The behemoth lurking, known as cat
Is not getting ready to pounce
But rather shaking the last curious ounce

The cat fixates on something odd
Not a mouse, nor a bird, nor a cod
As briefly as it intently stared
It turns away, as if prepared

It jumps to the side, as if chasing prey
The chameleon is safe this day
But who, I wonder, let it out to play
With a curious cat who’s owner was away?

A hand reaching out in the darkness
A beacon of joy remains sparkless
Where has the world gone, he wonders
Struggling with infinite necessity

Hurting inside and out
His restless mind wanders about
Curdling thoughts that lack specifics
Abandoned hope and help horrific

Warden of all the dark and twisted
Hampered truths, all limp-wristed
The infinite necessity ever rings true
His heartfelt cry turns a deeper blue

Waking mind from sleeping heart
The only avenue yet to start
Photos of grass capture not what he sees
The one bent rule out of infinite necessity

Demons swarm an angelic place
A fleeting pride turns to disgrace
The whirling failure overwhelms
No-one left to steer the helm

Waiting for his final breath
To be taken away by death
Awaiting him, what he can see
Is the plain of infinite necessity

As I said to Gambit on his stuff, I'll give my feedback on this as soon as I stop being a dickwad. :pepebounti:

To first point, how'd you connect a Chameleon to Covid? Also, good point about not reading the other poetry here. I'll work my way through it all. :D

That's the magic of poetry. It brings upon a different sense of interpretation everytime you imagine things..

Bobbing about for a sense of purpose
The energy builds, creating a surplus
Released as quickly as it came
Propelled through waters all the same

Thinking of nothing in particular
Lining its body perpendicular
To the clear ocean surface
Bobbing about for a sense of purpose

Sometimes up and sometimes down
Never minding which way around
Moves for however long it can
Without a concept of ‘bigger than’

Continuing life without forethought
No qualms with what it has wrought
Sometimes killer and sometimes prey
Ever it goes upon its way
