Tired of keeping too much love, a chameleon disappeared into the mountains to become a hermit.
Fall came and went, winter arrived and left, spring hung around then scooted, and the ocean was quiet about his secrets.
Summer arrived in all its glory, and he started to miss the feeling of being loved, wanted and worshipped.
So he came back home, reincarnating as someone else with a brand new story. On the way to the sea, he picked up pages of the old books he abandoned, and scattered words unabashedly, pretending he’d never read these chapters before. Lonesome fools fell again, just like then, because the words were pretty and their pages had been empty.
And so the tale of deception continued.
