Harsh lines, fierce


Look beyond.
hidden deep.
An uncut diamond.
A slice of heaven.

Chip away the coal.
Love emerges shining.
Yours to keep forever.
I won’t allow this.

My heart I keep safe.
Many a time it broke.
The mask repels others,
serious, stern.

Eyes that observe silently.
Knowingly, understanding.
Rejection seen clearly.
Reflection of harsh lines.

A face that is serious.
Some would say stern.
External features define
harsh lines, fierce.

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
