Suppressed memories


Deja vu, at the edge of your mind
Familiar yet not
a memory trying to get free
dreams unravelling

remembering, probing thoughts
a dreamscape, an alternate reality
different yet known
fluid, a ripple in time

jaded, pieces not fitting
trying to assemble
a picture developing
almost complete, deja vu

the road travelled now
a blur, miles eaten up
the tyre hits a pothole
I am awaken, a memory jogged

Deja vu, a memory unlocking
or a dream within a dream
for a split second I recognize
but like a wisp it fades away.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. 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
