Sandwiched bodies
Inching forward.
Anticipation ballooning.
Waiting for my turn
My shot
My chance
To spin the wheel of your affection
Meld those rich hues,
Blend them into one.
One in a million chance
999,999 in her favor.
But I have a hidden weapon,
I'm secretly a chameleon.
Tick
Red, warm, if you want.
Tick
Blue, cold, if you want.
Tick
Just say the word.
Tick
I can change.
Tick
I swear.
Tick
But then she runs up.
Happy as hell,
Waving the golden ticket in my face.
Leaping into the warmest kiss on the face of the planet,
Long flaxen hair caressing your face.
No, I don't have long hair
Or blonde hair.
Or even the golden ticket.
But
I'm a chameleon.
I can change,
I swear

I disagree with the comment below, this all fits together beautifully.  It has a really great rhythm to it.

"I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into a void, and that oblivion is inevitable... and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you." Augustus Waters
