A nagging doubt
As my footsteps dulcet echo across the darkened dismal cobbles of a dreary street
A whisper of solace
As our lives we share, and you weep and ache with despair
A cacophony of cheeriness
As we stride with gusto into growing uncertainty
A melancholy melody of metamorphosis
As I struggle to flutter and fly, reaching for the stars in the sky and knowing that I
wore the mask of the chameleon.
A rich and colourful cadenza of congeniality
As I reminisce and retreat
Into my own colourless void.
