How will I know?

autumn

I have searched for you
My whole life
In places I thought I’d find you
But I didn’t

You are like the wind
The whisper of a kiss
Softly touching my skin
A melody of wind-chimes

Yesterday I felt you
Was it a dream
I awoke
You weren’t there

I cry out for you
The wind is stronger
I cannot hear you
A storm is coming

Lightning flashes
And thunder roars
I am lost, alone
Am I safe? I hide!

Fear suffocating
I search for you
Crippling and unbearable
I don’t find you

The storm is almost gone
My heart calms down
The wind whispers softly again
Calling my name

Always a whisper
You cannot be seen
Always a touch
How will I know I’ve found you?

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
