Love forbidden


Darkness falls, anticipation rises.
A cloak covers the night.
Secrets shared, a love forbidden.
Hearts caught in a web of deceits.

Lovers stealing precious moments.
Desperate touches, urgent kisses.
They whisper words of love,
Never said in the light of day.

She cries for her lover hidden.
A yearning to wake up together.
Daybreak comes, he is besides her.
A dream, it is just a dream.

The night is their friend.
In shadows he comes to her.
She reaches out in the darkness.
Their arms entwined, passion takes over.

Such a tangle, hearts bleeding.
It hurts, this love forbidden.
If discovered, death awaits.
Yet, they risk all for love.

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
